Best Poem of Ellen Shaw

I Am But A Mixed Raced Child

What do I know?
I am but a mixed raced child
They say I must be confused
Mustn't know who
I am
They say I have wild ideas
Believing I can be black and white
At the same time
Never, they say can it be both day and night
They call me coconut
Say that my skin is the colour of Jamaica's mud
But inside I am white
That I think I am better than them
With all of my airs and graces

How can I be both?
When one half of me
Enslaved the other
They say I don't know my history
That my mother land
Covered my father land in tears
They say I am...

Leave Completely

If you are going to leave me
Leave.
Completely.
Don't stay one kiss
away.
Don't lay within my bed
and dream
of someplace else
dream only of me
