Black or White, Asian or Mexican,

in the end we are all only human.

It's not about the color of the skin,

or even the personalities within. 

You can't judge a book by cover, 

so do not assume one is a reject.

Choose a fighter after a lover, 

show respect and not neglect. 

This world may be diverse,

but we can reverse the curse. 

Time by time, working together, 

WE can end this violence forever.
