While some awaken to the smell of coffee brewing,
Lost in the their own world of self-fulfilling persuing,
There she lays in her man-made home,
Thankful for a glimpse of today’s God-like renewing,
Her sun, S-U-N, shall never stop controlling,
Every early morning wooing.
While some struggle with their outer appearance,
Thousands spent on beautification,
There he stands, grateful for health today!
Alive, hungry for a fillet filled with faraway prays.
It is not about our outer shell, he ponders in his self-made dwell,
Instead on internal soul happiness to increase our cells!
While you walk to school TODAY, freely, happy with security,
Live gratefully that you are not racially PROFILED!
About FIVE-HUNDRED innocents never made it!
They never made it due to the color of their outer layer,
Layers of human flesh that is conspicuously lied to the human eye!
Why? Why? Why?
Because human eyes lie!
We are all wise, whether we dwell in a costly home or man-made,
Whether our souls are strong or we rely on our beautiful shell,
It does not matter what color our outer flesh sells,
What matters is what expels at the expense of our selves!
