Yesterday I was black,

Today I am frightened,

Tomorrow I’d be lost.

I thought we were all humans,

A creation from God,

I didn’t know I would be treated differently

like a fraud.

Am I a ghost,

Why does everyone run?

I’m not a criminal

No, I’m human.

So, why do you point a gun?

Religion, class, cast

Black, brown or white

I thought these mindsets were in the past,

I thought everyone were finally all right,

But I guess I was wrong.

So I run, keep running

from this little world,

But I don’t know where to go,

How starved you must have been,

that my heart became a meal for your ego.
