Color Of My Skin

My best laid thoughts is to do the best that I can
As I am equal in GOD’s eye to any one man
Judge me by my deeds and what's deep within
Don't ever judge me by the color of my skin,
I am better than no one and no one is better than me
I am a human being, so I am my creators trustee
Freedom and equality was placed in my soul
To help my fellow brothers and sisters is my true goal,
I might stand alone and I might die where I stand
But for all I am ready to help with my outstretched hand
I work very hard to put food upon my dinner table
If I can breathe and walk, then I know I am able,
I will judge no man as I will not be judged
As I don’t know where they’ve been and they don’t know where I trudged
I will hate no one because of their race or their creed
As we all breathe the same air and red blood we all bleed,
I will fight any battle or war for freedom and independence
No one should be a slave who must rely on someones dependence
We all were created with mud and then shaped in a mold
And by no man were we created to be owned or controlled,
Equality is the belief that is etched inside my brain
My life here on earth should not be lived in futility or pain
Under the breath I am judged lazy and stupid by other men
And all because, of the color of my skin.
