Color

Beauty. You're too dark for thatYour luscious skin once againhas been attacked by such harsh mentorment and hate was destined for your fatespeak loud and brave, defend your fightno color no race shall determine the end  Courage invades your bloodin the fight to speak up to speak outbut no person speaks when a knout is at his feetFear and silence is in the leadthat make those wise men fetal again  You bent backward so that he does not have toyou sacrificed your life so that he may live hisyou had struggles on a daily while weak and fadingto ensure that your baby will not know the freak  Hung and chained by the depths of your domainpushed and shoved by someone inhumaneonly to strive for one small thing  Determination. Enterprise. Guts. Trumiph. Power. Bravery. Tenacity. Heroism. Resolution. Strength. Puguious.   and all that you are, you are color.Beautifully colored.
