Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

Love sees no colour

Love sees no colour

They loved each other and despite the differences in the colour of their skin, they had promised to be with each other through thick and thin. But not everyone understood.

“Did you really think through before getting into this relationship? Did you even bother to check his background?” When her parents got to know of her relationship, they simply admonished her without trying to understand her side of the story.

“When I was growing up, you taught me to respect every human. But now, just because of our differences in skin colour, you have a problem with his background? Honestly, I am ashamed hearing this.”

She knew that convincing her parents was a lost cause and both of them had to elope to be together.

“We go in different directions down the imperturbable street.” He hugged her tight and could only mutter to himself.

  1. Decisions bring people together and pull others apart.

      That’s so true. We are what we are because of the decisions we make.

  2. Beverly Crawford

    This reminded me of the Spencer Tracy movie “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”. I hope it ended as well.

      Though it took time, things did end well eventually :).

  3. This rings so true.
    Our very good friends went through this situation. His family did not attend their wedding. Our friends did keep the lines of communication open though, and eventually his family did come around–and even grew to love her.

      Ahh that sounds good. All’s well that ends well after all :).

  4. Sometimes parents can’t get past the vision of what they think their child’s life should be. It’s hard to reject your parents’ wishes. (K)

      Oh it is quite hard especially when they start to think that you are disobeying them due to your actions :(.

  5. It is sad how real this decision still is for so many people. We get told to respect all people, yet (in)consistently get shown a different story. Thank you for your piece

      It’s amazing to think that we have all come so far ahead but for so many of us our thinking still lags way behind quite sadly.
