You have no idea how it feels

To walk around with people watching you

Pointing their fingers at you

When you are in the streets

The little chaos you will be pointed at

The enforcers will like to ask you questions

When you happen to be in chaos

In their mind they think you started it

They hope you had no rights to defense

They are right to hope so

You were given none

You have no idea how it feels

To walk around with people watching you

To have in mind that the law is against you

To know that you can die defenseless

And yet your killer is said to stood his ground

No one dares to question him because he stood his ground

Wonder if you can stand your ground

No one dares to complain

Because no one is listening

There is a cry for justice

Yet no one hears

The criers are voiceless

You have no idea how it feels

To walk around with people watching you

To be called colored

Color fades with time

Color fades when washed

You have no idea how it feels like

To wash and wash

Hopping to rid you of the color

Yet there is no change

You find out later

You are not colored

You are naturally black

And black makes every color beautiful

You have no idea how it feels

To walk around with people watching you

To know you can make a difference

And yet no one takes notice

To have a potential

And yet remains hidden

To lend a helping hand

And yet no one takes

Even in need of help

Just because they say you colored

Because they colored you

You have no idea how it feels

To walk around with people watching

To help build

And yet your efforts not recognized

To help conquer

And yet your knightship not recognized

To draw a sword to defend

And yet be seen as a threat

To shield a friend from enemy arrow

And yet not called a hero

Just because they colored you

You have no idea how it feels

To walk around with people watching you

To know that you can be part of the team

Black and white makes a pretty color

Gray

Gray is wisdom

Gray resolves without drawing a sword

We need not shed blood in her presence

Let’s give the world a touch of gray
