    How do you see the world,
    is it thru brown eyes or blue ?...
    and if you ask what's the difference,
    then this poem is just for you.

    Blue eyes see murderers, conquerers,
    and founding fathers as grand....
    but brown sees genocide
    in this place where we stand.
    Blue sees discoveries,
    and sacred holidays...
    but brown sees discovery
    of our people made as slaves.

    Blue sees money
    as a means of escape,
    but brown recognizes
    it's our minds thats been raped.
    Blue sees the greatness
    of their people taught in school,
    but brown sees the fakeness,
    and the golden tarnished rules.

    Blue sees the glory
    in the flag oh so true,
    but brown spills the red,
    and the white makes us blue.
    Blue says that people,
    are really just the same.
    But brown see these words
    as just another game.
    Blue speaks the words
    of sincere proclamations,
    while brown's still in search
    of their own emancipation.

    Blue says that they have
    the only real solution,
    while brown's still in wait,
    of a serious revolution.
    Blue builds bombs,
    to kill and to maim,
    while brown steadily dies,
    from blue and their aids.
    So how do you see the world,
    is it thru brown eyes or blue ?...
    and if you don't see the difference,
    then this poem was just for you.

    I see!

    Interesting message that carries quite the load, even from my travels all through the Pacific Northwest my brown eyes witnessed all kinds of elements to keep myself alert. The abuses are real and done with no regards to the results involving others. Even when we look beyond our realm the task to be in control goes even in other lands as if it is owned.
