Differences

Should I befriend you because of your character and integrity?
Oh, should I write you off because of history that’s petty?
Can I look beyond what I see before me?
And see what you can be

Are your wins because of the color of your skin?
Or is it something deeper within
Are you better than me?
No, I just think we see things differently
You say you’re smart
I just sit here and do art
But does that really mean we must live apart?
