I Know What I Am


What does it matter?

If someone is yellow, black,white, brown or blue

What does it matter?

If I am a different color than you

I have the same amount of rights

I wake up in the morning and I sleep at night

I am Asian but we are not all chinky eyed

My eyes are big and deeper than  the sea

You see

There is no difference between you and me

We both have hearts that beat as one

We both have eyes to see the beautiful world

We both have ears to hear the sounds of nature and those around us

We both have a mind to think things that should not be said out loud

So don't you dare discriminate against me telling who I am not

I know what I am

I am equal

I am you
