   I can't see colors.

... I'm not blind.

Brown or yellow,

It's in your mind.

Why do we label?

... Skin is skin,

Was it a fable?

... It's a sin.

Where did it start,

And why?

It wasn't smart,

... I sigh.

Green, orange, blue,

Which are you?

Red, purple, pink

Makes you think.

Racism in '92 shouldn't be here.

Do something about it if you care.

In shapes we're separate,

In souls we're equal.
