If I Could Change The World

If I could change the world

I would drain it of color

Just the people’s skin

Or ability to see that in each other

Maybe then there’d be less hate

Everyone would be with who they want to date

Repetitive history could not be an actor

Because the color of one’s skin would not be a factor

There’d be no discrimination

Based on your complexion

Families wouldn’t be torn apart

Neither would our hearts

People would be forced to look deeper

Than just skin deep

There would be no such thing

As hate at first sight

If I could change the world
