Black Lamb, Black Sheep


Black lamb, black sheep

In the shadows you hide.

Your insecurity is prevalent

even through your downcast eyes.


I see through your façade

Black Lamb, black sheep.

Your masquerade will not suffice.

Prejudiced eyes distinguish the disguised.


While you’re a misfit

You are not alone.

Black lamb black sheep,

inequity exists between us all.


We are all judged

You are not unique

In every soul resides a

black lamb, black sheep.
