my blackness is defined in ethnic tones authentic by the books-a lie in life if you look close enough. i cannot stand the sun. the sun cannot stand me hence not a drop of blackness in my skin. something went wrong inside of me-me this two toned child a shoe with an interior wearing off after long term use of abuses hurled at me...not the me they cannot see, but the only me they choose to see. hail, hail, the genetics of man to call a man black yet whiter than any olive or yellow man.. the colour scheme is out of balance now, what i gonna do, what i gonna do, when they come for me and ask me to choose a side.
