Am I Evil?

Am i evil for believing what i do?
Am i evil for not agreeing with you?
Can't i be right and you wrong,
maybe your weak and im strong

Am i evil for having dark skin?
Am i evil for not being your twin?
Can't i be white and you black,
maybe i have what you lack.

am i evil for not being like you?
am i evil for being a nail... and u a screw?
Can't i be the screw and you the nail
maybe i'll succeed and where you fail
maybe your the evil one and im the good
and ur the one whos misunderstood.

    i wrote this when my first love told me her mom was racist. Her mom hated me and always found ways to split us up. racism is a dark and evil thing, but ive learn that what is good and what is evil is a point of view.

    hoped u liked it, even tho my grammar suckz.
