Races



Why are we so greedy and mean
Why can't we see the beauty for what there
is to be seen
The whole world could open to us
if we could judge with our hearts and not
our eyes

Love knows no race
it just enjoys the chase of something new
Why can't we all love each other and just
have fun
cause there are better things to do than run
from little things like different races

Every race loves the same
broken hearts and driven insane
We look so different from the outside in
But we're all the same past the color of the skin.
