My Body

My hair is too short and I’d rather have blonde hair 

I love my body

I have too many pimples on my face 

I love my body 

my skin is too dark, I’d rather be white 

I love my body

at least I have hair to comb in the morning 

I love my body 

at least I don’t have  a skin disease 

I love my body 

my skin has melanin, not experienced by some 

I love my body 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
