They look at me

through eyes of unjust hate
I’m not wanted
it’s clear I’m out of place
like a pawn where a king should be
they think they know my creed
they assume they know me
by what they see on TV
too ignorant to pay attention to reality
I don’t think violence is the answer
I try to keep a king mentality
fighting for others as well as fighting for me
so when they look at me
I simple say hello or hi
without an evil eye
as I walk on by
I may be out of place
at least I try
to find my place
