I don’t normally write rap, but this is my first attempt. I hope you like it.
If white was black and black was white,
If light was dark and dark was light,
How different the world would be.
Not only for you, but also for me.
But what if colour did not exist.
No such thing as a white racist.
If we were all the same,
Would that be such a shame?
What if, when we were girls and boys,
No guns, no dolls, just neutral toys.
Would we all grow up the same?
Would our life be rather lame?
What if we all lived in harmony?
There is no you, there is no me.
Would that be really tragic?
Or would it be, just magic?
