We walk hand in hand
Like a bouquet of flowers
We all look different
Inside we’re all the same

No matter what they say
We can overcome society
Maybe these matters make me who I am today
What you look like doesn’t define you

So now we can make a choice
You can have voice
Or keep it the same

No matter the consequences
You have the right to speak your mind

Stand for what’s right
And then you will see
What makes this all a reality?

Black and white and all the others
Does it really matter the skin colors?
We can let it affect us or put it behind us

Like a forked path
One day you must choose
Which way is right for you.
