Shade me in or out of your life
if you don’t like me, I don’t mind
you look at me, but you can’t see me
your words can’t beat me, so they can’t kill me.
I was born with two eyes
That see light to sense color
But still dal-tonic I am
Cause I don’t see them judging wise,
Since my eyes can only see
They can’t think nor speak
And if they spoke they would say
We are not a color we are a shade.
We are brown as the earth,
Some are coffee, some are cream
Depending on where you come from,
And Your family and genes.
It depends of the weather
And your ancestors too,
I got a heart and lungs
That breath the same air as you
So, look at me, I’m not a color,
I wasn’t born a color,
It doesn’t affect my mind,
It doesn’t make me smaller,
I am not black or white
As all people claim
We are all brown not grey,
Do not try to cheat sight
The conflict is in the shade
On being dark or light.
