    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.

    choose not forth ya heart is still pure and as of one shade
    we all come down dis path of life at some point yet see
    far pass da colour of da outter side and what true blackness
    reside inside da walls of da heart forth it still remain da same
    color ...........worry not let them come within and feel da depth
