Same Level


the walls we put up to protect
May deceive what's really correct
Perfection is not a goal in reach
That's something the schools can't even teach
But I'm the black kid who swallowed the bleach
Being this way made me feel so incomplete
But just being yourself is harder than said
Most won't admit what puts them to dread
Thinkin we all have to achieve perfection
Leaves our lives cut into seperated sections
Those who are closer and those further away
But if you looked closer than what people say
You'll find out we're all on the same level
Those who are supposedly heavenly or resemble the devil are all on the same level
We hide behind these walls to shield the truth
But we need to knock them down ending their use
And reveal the true feelings we all share
