If Only the World Believed in Itself

 

I'm just like you

You're just like me

We all share commonalities

 

But still we hate

And stereotype

Yet we're all victims of this plight

 

Why can't we learn

To just embrace

Different styles, different tastes

 

It stings me hard

Within my soul

To know that you will never know

 

Look around

And you will see

Beauty in every possibility

 

There are no such things

As strong and weak

At times, We're all tough

At times, we're all meek

 

Take my hand

Try to understand

We won't survive

If we don't learn to be open

 

I've had my share

Of suffering and pain

Which taught me quickly

That I needed to change

 

And so I tell you

once again

Love's our saviour

in the end

 

You're just like me

I'm just like you

But I don't deny this

Like you do
