    I guess when I look at people I don’t see color
    All I see is the destruction, a cold war
    Racism will never be gone I fear
    When will everyone’s racial differences clear
    Just open your eyes and see
    This world won’t let people like me be
    Because I have fallen for a man
    A man that is a different color grain of sand
    He brought me to life
    But could I ever be his wife
    Everywhere we go people stare
    With glances of all sorts of evil glares
    I only feel complete with him though
    There is no possible way I could let him go
    Parts of my family just can’t hide
    Being a part of them doesn’t give me any pride
    Him and me share this battle together
    No one can predict the weather
    I pray for a better day in our age
    When we can be together without others having so much rage
    I try not to let everyone get to me
    But I wish people would just wake up and see
    One day I hope to see unity
    In the end we're just one big community
    Please try to make a difference
    And stop living in such ignorance
    How many people have to live in pain
    Living life in the constant rain
    Slowly minds are changing though
    Someday together we’ll grow, I just know

    One_Love
    Glad to be back :) It's been a long time
