The Walls that Devide

The walls that divide, are of color and of race,

In a world of brotherhood, they have no place.

Black and white, color has no worth,

We're all brothers and sisters at birth.

We all play under the same sky of blue,

So why is there the distance between me and you?

We're all given warmth by the same golden sun,

So why can't we live in peace as one?

We all inhale the same pure air,

So why isn't there any love to spare?

When the sun goes down and it's dark as night,

We're all the same color, so why do we fight?

Under our feet, the grass is green,

Why don't we look in our brothers for the goodness unseen?

Shoulder to shoulder, the mountains rise tall,

So why do we cause our brothers to fall?

The wall that divide are of color and race,

In a world of brotherhood, they have no place.

Let us bury our differences under the earth,

We're all brothers and sisters at birth.
