A proverb a day to brighten the day!

374a. Der Träger weiß, wo der Schuh drückt.
374b. The wearer knows where the shoe pinches.

One who had never got hurt in his life, won't realize how much it hurts 'to get hurt'.
There is nothing like personal experience to make people realize what the others are going through.

footnotes:
Der = The
Träger = wearer
weiß = knows
wo = where
der = the
Schuh = shoe
drückt = pinches.

Brown is beautiful!

White men want their skin turn brown;
For hours they roast under the hot sun!

Wearing next to nothing for uniform tan;
Yet we dislike our natural color a brown!

Fairness creams are on the sale;
For not just female but also male!

Why this craze for what we is not ours?
Why do we crave for what is not ours?

Skins are made just the body to protect;
And help the change in temperature detect!

To keep away the crows, flies and fleas;
From filling with flesh & blood their bellies!

Think no more on the color of outer skin;
Just make sure that it is healthy and clean!

Half the problem in this world are born;
From the next door girl to Troy’s Helen;

Out of the color of the skin on the exterior!
None bothers about the mind in the interior! :(
