Because of my color, you dont see me

The sparkle in my eye, 
the shine of my hair

To you, it was never even there

Because of a stereotype, you'll never be free

My point of view
Where Im coming from

Just as I begin, to you, Im already done

Because of your blinders, you will never see

The openness of my mind
The freedom of my spirit

Unfortunetly, you haven't enough time

Because your so scared, you wont know happy

My beautiful voice
The pureness of my soul

Don't even bother giving yourself the choice

Because of fear, you have a disability

The light inside that glows
My color blindness

Go ahead, just keep your eyes closed

Because of lies, you love conditionally

The smile on my face
with my sun kissed cheeks

To you its a disgrace, because of a belief

Hate me for something I'v done or someone I have hurt
Hate me for who I am , not what I am
Hate for a real, passionate, undisputed, no questions asked reason
Then, just then 
If you can 
Forgive, not me, but yourself
