    Beyond Color tone

    it's crazy ... cause coming up, 
    across some lines we never crossed, 
    as life's journey continued
    the souls of the eyes starring back at me
    weren't encased in the same skin
    a love gravitating beyond color tone
    I began to realize that racism was
    only some control game, I'd been sucked into
    because hate can't exist where this touch came from
    gentle with my fears, and my flaws
    as if he was caressing his own heart .lips so sweet, 
    tenderly sucking, gently pulling mine.
    so affectionate, I started off suspicous of his intentsions.
    I begin to get angry , about all the lies I was fed
    If i had thought deep enough, I would've
    known spirits don't have any race ...
    to some degree, media images perpatuated
    the ignorance of racial separation.
    now, i'm not saying , a mutual respect isn't
    in order , We all have a code conduct that must
    be observed . Truth is ,,, he was very culturally aware , he knew most of what not to say.Along the way , people of all
    races have helped me in one way or another.
    the attraction between us was magnetic
    every time were in sync it's energetic.
    I'm seriously ...thinking of trying "Something New"
    A love strong enough to combat the stigma's of
    society... I cringed at the thought of what our
    parents may say. They came up in a very different day.

    "because hate can't exist where this touch came from" " If i had thought deep enough, I would've known spirits don't have any race ..." Man, those lines just POP out for me. It is a shame that everyone doesn't see things this way. Brilliant!!
