Shades Apart

Where do you draw the line?
And is it bold, or is it fine?

Can you hold your head up high?
Or do your words make others cry?

Do you see all men as brothers?
Or do your eyes divide by colors?

Is there equality? Or do you separate
with colored lines drawn from hate?

Look in your heart, what do you see?
Love? Hate? Immorality?

If you don't like what you find,
then it's time to leave it behind…

So open your mind and soften your heart,
we aren't meant to be shades apart...
