Dear Society,

Why do you decide who passes and who fails
Throwing innocent people in jails
Just because the color of our skins
In my school the blacks always win

Not dating her just because she doesn’t dress right
Instead dating that girl whose clothes are too damn tight
Judging a book by its cover
Thinking that’s how you’ll love her
But sometimes the cover is better than its content

When did society decide that we had to change
And wash a tee shirt after every individual use:
If it's not dirty, wear it.
What about the booze?
When was it okay and cool?
Allowing kids to sell drugs in school

You don’t care that young girls are having sex
They’re already getting pregnant what’s next?
Diseases leading to death

What about the kids who don’t think they’re good enough
Your perfect TV families and models
Yeah, like their lives are never rough
All the young people out there
Thinking their lives are unfair
Sex, drugs and killing
That’s not the way to make a living

You make this world chaos
People liven day to day wondering if they’re good enough
What gives you the right to make me, make us
