They beat me down,
I am bruised.
They ostracize, isolate me,
I am alone.
They yell abuse,
I am hurt.
They scream threats,
I am afraid.
But I will survive,
I will endure this injustice
Until people realise that we are all the same,
Just people sharing the Earth,
Just people with hopes and dreams
So that our children will grow up
In a better world, a fairer world
Where you no longer need to cower in fear
Of something you cannot control,
Where people can see past the colour of your skin
And see the wonderful light you bring to the world.
