A Question of Colour

There’s pain in your heart
For being black
Making me conscious
I am white

There’s pain in my heart
For being white
Making you conscious
You are black

Is it a Whiteman’s world?
In a Blackman’s land


A Blackman’s world
In a Whiteman’s land

Has the colour of our skin
Simply confused our ability to be friends
