What truly matters
In the world we live today?
The color of on'e skin and eyes?
The grades that you get?

Why does it matter
Who your family is
Or how much money you have?
Why does it matter
Where you live,
Whether it be in a home or on the streets?

Life shouldn't be limited
To a majority of the world
Just because the color
Of their damn skin.
Trust me,
Look deeper and you'll see,
A person's true worth
Is MUCH deeper within.

-D.S.
