Bleak Like Me

September 25, 2016

Driving out the bleakness


Pink like me

Blank like me

Oh the tragedy

To be a

Freak like me


It’s with my humanity, I wrestle

Sometimes feel, like an empty vessel


Nothing proud to stand for

Certainly not my skin color


How does skin pigment, have any worth

When it’s strictly, an accident of birth


Society doesn’t seem to be to bright

When it considers, shades of pink, white.


No better,  getting on the right track

Regarding anything brown,  as black.


Until we are all gray and homogenized

Differences, shouldn’t make us terrorized


Celebrating differences could be grand

If we weren’t making everything so bland


Inspired by listening to the audio book “Black Like Me” by John Griffin


From → dark, driving, humor, random
