    Blend In

    Call me kin
    A family of humans
    Bloodied shins
    Kicking for equality, the revolution
    Fight to win
    Collective love is the solution
    Ignore skin
    Color is an illusion
    Through thick and thin
    Retracing steps through evolution
    Hear my violin
    Attempts to calm aggravated confusion
    We're all twins
    Until different anatomy is proven

    They call it sin —
    A hollow, clandestine execution
