"I Am/Shades of Life" as written by Bruce Roberts, David Edward Malloy and Mattie Stepanek....
I am black, I am white
I am all skins in between
I am young, I am old
I am each age that has been

I am scrawny, I am fed
I am starving for attention
I am famous, I am cryptic
I am hardly worth a mention

I am short, I am height
I am any frame or stature
I am smart, I am challenged
I am striving for a future

The color of sky
Is blues and grays
The color of earth
Is greens and browns

The color of hope
Is rainbows and purple
And the color peace
Is people together

Shades of life
People together
Shades of life

I am
I am able, I am weak
I am some strength, I am none
I am being, I am thought

I am all things, said and done
I am born, I am died
I am dust of humble roots
I am grace, I am pain

I am labor of willed fruits
I am slave, I am free
I am bonded to my life
I am rich, I am poor

The color of sky
Is blues and grays
The color of earth
Is greens and browns

The color of hope
Is rainbows and purple
And the color peace
Is people together

Shades of life
People together
Shades of life

I am
I am shadow, I am glory
I am hiding from my shame
I am hero, I am loser

I am yearning for a name
I am empty, I am proud
I am seeking my tomorrow
I am growing, I am fading

I am hope amid the sorrow
I am certain, I am doubtful
I am desperate for solutions
I am leader, I am student

I am fate and evolutions
I am spirit, I am voice
I am memory, not recalled
I am chance, I am cause

I am effort, blocked and walled
I am hymn, I am heard
I am reasoned without rhymes
I am past, I am nearing

I am present in all times
I am many, I am no one
I am seasoned by each being
I am me, I am you

I am all-souls now decreeing
The color of sky
Is blues and grays
The color of earth

Is greens and browns
The color of hope
Is rainbows and purple
And the color peace

Is people together
Shades of life
People together
Shades of life
I am
