I am me
And you are you
I am no different
From me to you

Some can solve problems
That were never to be found

Just like snowflakes
Were told we all are askew
But when it comes down to it
I am me
You are you

With some differences

Equal education
That needs to be sought for
And non discrimination, and equal rights 
That needs to be fought for

Is a cause often seen
While falling at the weight

Is the new thing

All I can
Say to your actions is that
I have no control over your actions but
