    Who am I? What color do I resemble?
    I'm proud of how my body is built cuz Godsaid its my temple

    But I look at my family's faces and look at me
    I'm alittle darker, but their skintone is simple

    I'm darker than my mother, but lighter than my father
    But I go by black but then they say I'm too proper

    I love every person and I learned thats all that counts
    The color of my skin doesn't matter

    I'm proud of what I've become
    I'm thankful I've been made this way by my master.

    I'M PROUD THAT YOU'RE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE. A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN'T SAY THAT, EVEN WHEN THERE'S NOT OBVIOUS SITUATION LIKE YOURS.
