    (do not judge my case or this poem untill i am finished)




    a person who had White fear coulndt get a job...
    cause i already lost the job while i walked in the office....
    with that fear tough my mother is ""white....
    a person who was walking in dark they called me ""Light skin""
    and black people feared me.....
    age 7 heavy rocks hit me because 8 White kids told me to go home to my own country...age 12 until late 30 2 black man who talked about africa the motherland...wanted to use my lightskin to put me behind a dark Window.




    ""WHAT! "'Light"' skin ...and ""DARK"" skin...


    how come than i have seen a white person in dark....
    and seen a black person in light..
    seen a white person in light..
    seen a black person in dark...


    seen a white person who shines darkness..
    seen a black person who shines light...


    seen a white person who shines light...
    seen a black person in darkness...




    i speak the language of children....

    I can feel ur pain Auroraflora cuz itz not easy;my mother is also white.She told me something really interesting "u don't choose the family,the skin or the time u want to live:u can be whatever u want to".Many of half black and half white are lost because they don't have an IDENTITY!!!There is no race for them;sometimes they are white and other black!As soon as u MAKE the choice,everything will be right!!!Just like Eminem who feel black within:i think he has taken so many baths that his skin pickled -lol-
    Anyway,u r welcome in da "B. world",no matter the other can say or think about.

    I cannot judge for I have not walked in your shoes. You are reaching inside, and giving us a piece of yourself. I appreciate that, and look forward to reading more.

    sweet loyd...(i love you brother)



    i dont want to choose and i dont have to choose....
    i will never deny or neglect my 2 backgrounds and cultures..

    i am more than a colour.....


    i am human...


    i am not lost ...cause i was saved by god...
    i am free...



    but i am having my struggles...
    the other ones has those the other has these...

    and i am going trough a heavy on ..now...
    a verry heavy one..
    because it is not about me alone...
    if god calls you for sumthing to do ..
    it is beautifull ..but aint easy..


    people have no idea...
    where i am going trough...

    and where god wants to bring me..

    and take me trough...







    Loveauroraflower:heart:
