    I need to be set free from the beatens
    To go out with my friends on the weekends
    I want to be able to express my unique individuality
    Not just show that I am black because that is what you want me to be
    Because I am not
    I really do not care what you think is hot
    I am black, puerto rican and white
    I hid for a long time but for I am now I put up a fight
    I am tired of saying that I am just light skin
    Because of your stupid husband that you do not want me offend
    I want to express my true beauty
    I hated when I was younger how you told me I would never be a cutie
    I want to feel free
    To decide who I want to see
    I want to just be free to be me
    So please mommy just let me be

    So wonderfully vivid, it's terrible.

    Do know that there is a place where u can just be...

    Inside yourself.

    Find U, love U, respect U, understand U.

    Peace.
