Hue


Brown like earth
Bones are crushed up under
Miracles based survival
Lives created by wonder

History with a vengeance
Slaved for the mission
Laws for the lighter 
Skinned by our teeth to follow tradition

Hope is platter 
Served only on the inside
Plantation by the mileage
Bibles read in the dark side

Too many times rebellion
Skeletons built our closet
Bankruptcy for profit 
With a negative deposit

For the hue of you
I'll hold the judgement 
I'll also hold the bar
Try to rise above it
