I look out of the window and I can see,
The different people around me.
Black and white,
Straight and gay,
Doing things in their own way.

Male and female,
Gay men in drag.
Lesbians with shaved heads,
A hippy with a flowered bag.

Everyone has their stereotypes,
Whether they are black or white.
There are people, who just don’t get on,
Which often leads to a fight.

Stereotypes are like a game,
But deep down inside we are all the same.
We may do things differently, like sing or dance,
We are all the same,
But different in appearance.

I believe that we are  equal,
No matter how big or how small .
Black or white,
Straight or gay,
Everyone does things differently,
In there own unique and special way.
