Overwhelming Thoughts


Feelings are hidden,

Disguised behind the eyes,

Lies upon lies,

People are shy,

I can’t deny that it hurts me.

My skin, different, darker, distinct,

Big nose, big lips, big heart

My eyes, a black hole of emotion,

Wanting to be something I am not

I can’t deny that it hurts me.

Of course they treat me different,

My past people suffered,

Innocent victims,

Beaten because of who they are,

I can’t deny that it hurts me.

Frizzy hair


Coils intertwined, a small individual against others,


Thoughts boiling within

An innocent victim

I can’t deny that it hurts me.

What world are we in?

Be strong

Be proud

Be free in your own skin.

That doesn’t hurt.

Whatever colour you are, embrace it.
