We have a choice, a choice to be different or to follow the crowd.

Why do they look at you and hate?
Can they not see, we are all the same?

The wheels have turned,
Time has gradually changed.

Spitting and mocking,
Pretenders are they.
Still yet brother, we don't give a damn,
about what society has to say.

Pushing and fighting, to get our way,
Society judges, giving us hell to pay.

Foolish critics, they are the damned.
Laughing stock to them, we still take a stand.

'Til the end courageous and strong—
forgiving those who do us wrong.

Open your eyes society,
Enough with the discrimination and jealousy.
It matters not the race and ability,
For "We the People", were all made differently.
