if i could change

if i could change the shade
the color of my skin
lose my faith, my heritage
and start anew again

those who now ignore me
or show me disrespect
might be moved to friendship
by changes i effect

they might judge me fairly
if i were more like them
so much less for each of us
to question or condemn

so much less for us to learn
from all whose paths we’ve crossed
as my soul and each it’s touched
would to this world be lost
