You don’t even know me…

so true…hopefully one day love will truly conquer hate and we can all live together in harmony!! very thought provoking write!



You avoid me and throw glares
your words hurt like a knife
There is more to you and me
then simply black and white

What are you against?
Is it my race?
My skin’s a different shade of yours,
what difference does it make?

Is it the style of my hair?
My mind is trying to guess.
Why must we stay at war,
don’t you like the way I dress?

Why should you care 
who I give my heart to?
Through this barrier, there
needs to be a break through

You don’t know me
You see only my shell
I smile and cry just like you
I’m tired of living in this hell

Our heart’s rhythm is the same
but I can’t make you understand
You turn a deaf ear while
your hate holds the upper hand
