Had you seen through our eyes

Had you seen through our eyes

And his body wouldn’t have been dragged

to the Tallahatchie

by humanized imps coated in white

 

Had you seen through our eyes

And the crow wouldn’t have nested

In the integrity of the American population,

But rather in the impartial nature of a tree

 

Had you seen through our eyes,

And this unnatural hierarchy

Of white on top of black

Would have coexisted

In the form of a yin-yang

 

Had you seen through our eyes

and you would have touched the

core of irrelevance

because one cannot be separated

yet equal at once

 

Had you seen through our eyes and

Maya would had never risen

For she would have already

Been on top

 

Had you seen through our eyes

And you would have seen the eagle

With wings that were compressed

His morals were miscarried

And now his identity’s at threat

 

Had you seen through our eyes

Those of a weeping majority

Forced to dishonor their roots

As color was more important

And hence were our looks

 

With humble motives

I am a being willing to strive

But In a world filled with prejudice

I wonder

will you ever see through my eyes?
