2019 June 18: ME MYSELF AND I

by Viola Rosy May

I AM WHO I AM

I AM ME

Some youngsters would like to be

I don’t have much to give but a humorous spirit within me

I’m beautiful, I’m fat and dark as can be with a little light shining in me

I’m coloured, I’m mixed, I’m what ever you want me to be

You name the color and change it for free

My father is coloured and mother is black

Does that make you any better than me?

Come closer, nooo closer, more closer and not behind my back

Stand this side on the right side because I need to state a fact

You feel me, you smell, you touch me like that

The same heart beat runs down your neck

I AM WHO I AM I AM ME

My colour or status does not define me

I’m different, unique and do not strive to be someone else in-front of me

You know me, you don’t own me

I’m born out of the earth which protected me from birth

No color in my hair tells you I’m a bear

I am human like you so stop the stare
