- Color Me Not - Poem by Kay Barcelon

- Color Me Not -

Rating: 2.7


Why do you wish to be a chameleon
And camouflaged with the rest
You are beautiful just as you are
And you do not need to blend

Red White Black Yellow or Brown
They all have starving children around
Crimes are every where you go
Not because of the color of their skin

We have been judged and discriminated upon
So true I believe it is not because of the shade
As far as I know we are what we do
What you believe in is what changes the color of you

So color me not
I will remain neutral and brown
For that who I really am
I am so lucid see through inside of me now
