    Sometimes I hate that god created color
    So many people are so quick to judge one another
    There are so many colors on earth
    So many different forms of birth
    So many different races
    But everyone runs at different paces
    That some just get passed by
    At some point every color wants to die
    Because in the end they are all the same
    Just a modified version along a common vein
    But every color always feels left out
    You just don’t like my color they shout
    Never realizing that wasn’t what it was about
    You’re making color the issue without a doubt
    It’s a disease that has affected our mind
    There are so many weaklings I find
    They just aren’t very tough
    You can’t cure it and say that’s enough
    The younger ones definitely are stronger
    Stick in there I pray not to much longer
    Someday the disease will have a cure
    And all colors will be unified and pure
    And everyone will see the beauty of every color
    Step as friends and face each other

    One_Love
