Team Lightskin or Darkinskin

Does beauty fade from my skin if it's too dark?

Well if beauty is only skin deep, judge the color of my heart,

The hue of my soul.

And if you look inside my heart, you should find a hole.

Does lighter complexion make more perfect flesh?

Does being light skin make your quality of being the best?

Or should we put this battle to rest?

This poem is about: 
Our world

We should definitely put this battle to rest. It doesn't matter what color one's skin is. It matters what kind of heart we have. Racist hearts come in all skin colors. So do good hearts who realize that God made everyone beautiful
