There’s no reason to try

Could I ever let my heart love again
that’s a question that might never get answer
It’s been torn and broken many times
And I continue to let you back in
knowing you would hurt me, but figure
that this love can change you
Now I know that it’s not fixable,
forget trying to repair it, there’s
no tools available to fix this heart
Each beat keeps fighting to stay alive
wondering when it will be right
Wanting to love again, but to fragile
to try again
The wrong move and there be nothing
there to love.

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.
