Inner Peace – Short Poem


Is this the point where I give up and go to bed

I’ve been disgraced, embarrassed, body shamed… I walk in disguise afraid to be caught dead mingling

For I’m black and under

Below and deranged

I don’t have a place except that for hiding

I can’t face the world cause I’m too ugly,

So where else can I be

How then can I live

Oh I apologize for being me

I hope it’s not too late to be white and beautiful


But why do I have to be white when there’s beauty in black

Pride and courage

Strength and Unity

For whenever I hide I get to be my black and proud black

Why then should I run

I’ll face the crowd and make me known.
