Seek for the truth
Where it is not hidden.

For bitterness may await you in the after.

Filled with a melancholic...

Saline droplets sashay on its mottled skin.
A blemished, variegated specimen…
That lacked pigment.
It lies in envy and awe of the
Wholly
Bronzed sovereigns,
the offspring of mother earth
Meticulously moulded with clay and soil.
Made to prevail scorching beams and sultry skies.

 And yet...
The black abomination gazes yearningly
With Salted beads cascading on its sunburnt skin.
A blackened, heartless creature…
That still carried a pulse.
It bows in reverence to the
Light-endowed
Fair skinned deitys,
Heaven brought...
