Is it because my skin is not as light
as yours or cause I don’t speak the
same language or I don’t kiss ass
or let you run all over me
I am the best at what I do, but
you pass me on, to go to your kind
and you don’t respect what I have done,
but give them the credit and I did all the work
You give me funny looks, but smile up in my face
You speak a language I don’t understand, but
I know you are talking about me
Last I check it wasn’t supposed to be about color
Just about my performance still I stand tall and
do what I got to do, because you will never
acknowledge me.
