If you could would you change your race?
Would you no longer want to live in this place
Would you disown your brother, or lie about your mother?
Would you no longer speak your native tongue
So, everyone around you would know you belong
Would you laugh at the jokes without batting an eye?
Knowing deep down you want to cry
This world can be so out of place
Especially when it comes to race
Why do we have to be better than another?
Take off the skin and we are the same my brother
But society has passed down its greed
So, some want more than they need
Then some want to get it, off the backs of others
Never realizing that this is your brother
Oh, how I long to go to a place
Where there is nothing but the human race!
