Other Poems by Louis Gander


Each one of us is special here -

individually -

with 'whites' in a majority

and 'blacks', minority.

But melody is harmonized

if peacefulness draws near,

if individual respect

is faithful and sincere.


It's true, we've only known the shoes

that we have grown up in -

but oftentimes these thoughts we think

are ugliness and sin.

But beautiful, the music is,

if we can see it through,

if we can lift the fall-board up

and know what we must do.


Though some still try to group the white,

acknowledge not, the black -

and others try to group the black

to fill a money sack -

the moral of the story here

is not to follow these -

but rather the fine melody -

the music we can't see.


Now look at the piano keys.

Do you see black and white?

Yet beautiful the music is,

performed together right.

For God so loved this very world -

and everyone we see -

but yet created harmony -

as it was meant to be.
