It isn’t the outer person that really counts for much –
For they may be handsome and debonair – with a heart you cannot touch –
It’s inside that’s important – how we feel toward one another –
For whether we admit it or not – God made us to be brothers.
We are all the same within – no matter the color of the skin.
When wounded the blood we shed – is all alike the color’s red.
When deep emotions show, we weep – our tears are clear in joy and grief.
We all have hearts that beat within.
To perform for the least of man.
We all have a soul. God put it there.
And a conscience too! So be aware.
God made us equal from within –
And though he gave us different skin,
Who are we to question is plan?
Or to rule over any race or man.
