colorism

I'm sorry my hair offends you

im sorry its puffy curls block your view

you made me feel ashamed when i had cornrows in while being so young but now you call them boxer braids

i never asked for my skin to be this dark but i bet you could have never guessed that in my own community i'm at the bottom of the poll because of my tint

but honestly i'm not sorry at all, you were the ones building the wall

i wasn't raised to love me but i'm learnig and i would appreciate it if you could join in

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
