Why do you hate me?


Why do you hate me?

Is it cause my skin is the same color as the trees?

Is it cause my eyes are a little smaller than yours?

Or cause I hug and kiss just a little bit more?

If you got to know me I'm sure we'd be friends

But our friendship was over before it began.

Yes you're from here and I'm from there

But to say I'm not worthy just isn't fair!


Is it my tiny hat that I wear when I pray?

Or the fact that I go to temple everyday?

If you take a second you can see were the same

The twins Bigotry and Blindness are to blame.

Let the rain come down and clean your minds

Then look out the window just open your blinds.

Hopefully by now your mind is free

There is absolutely no reason to hate me.
