Me, Myself & I

I want to be accepted,but instead i´m being accused.
Of the way that i dress and the colors that i use.
I thought we lived in a country'that´s supposed to be free.
But instead I see prejudice looking down on me.
I am not @ fault. but I am free to choose.
cause only I can identify with the colors that I use.
But when it comes to the color that I wear on my skin.
Who are you to judge and whom am I to choose?
