Look at those eyes,
Such beautiful eyes,
Some people go all the way to buy contact lenses that look like this.
Look at this skin,
Pure white like an angel’s,
We actually do have angels among us,
Just that most of us are too blind to see.
If only we look carefully,
We would see such wonderful wings,
Wings capable of taking on the world.
What about that golden hair?
Have you not noticed the trend?
Some ladies actually fix these colours of weave.
Albinos are indeed wonderful creatures.
If we really look at it,
We would actually see that God has made them with qualities that some people spend a lot of money to acquire.
They are not witches, ghosts or other things that people label them to be.
The colour of an individual’s skin should never determine how we treat or relate with them.
To all my alby friends,
My love for you can’t be edited.
To all the albys I am yet to meet,
I can’t wait to finally meet you.
You are more beautiful than you can imagine,
Stand tall because heads would always turn as you walk past,
Shine bright because your skin colour already makes you stand out,
Fly high because you are an angel.
Bring all your dreams to reality.
