Am I Not Black Enough ?

1 Comment

Am I not black enough?

I am same same like you

Is my past too stolen?

Am I white too much?

Am I too outspoken?

Why do choose to abuse me? 

Is it because I’m not from here?

Is it my skin tone?

Why do you choose to exclude me?

Am I not black enough?

Is my past too stolen?

Am I white too much?

Is my education, forboden?

Why do you choose to abuse me?

Am I not black enough?

Are my thoughts not jaded, With a history stolen?

My stories raided. Why do you choose to refuse me?

Yes, I’m not from here.

But I’m black enough.

You have no right to abuse me.

Yes I’ve travelled far, From homelands faded.

Yes I’m black enough.

My bloodline is true, It’s not created.

My heart is swollen.

A family’s big like yours.

My mob’s strong like yours.

I am same same like you.

So please accept me.

Yes I’m black enough.

I  am same same like you. 

Dad
