Why Do You Fear Me?
I'm a Buddhist, a Muslim, a Christian, a Jew
I'm White, I'm Black, I'm Brown
Just like you
Why do you fear me, what was my crime?
I come here like you did
Once upon a time
I'm a Child who is hungry, a Woman who was raped
I'm a Man with no job, seeking poverty's escape
Why do you fear me? What is the harm
If I ask for a sandwich or a place to feel warm?
In my land there is violence, hatred and rain
I've heard here there is sunshine, kindness, no pain.
Why do you fear me? I mean no distress
I'm only running from those who oppress
I'm simply a human, with dreaming to do
You don't have to fear me
I'm just like you.
