Hey I Am Black - Poem by robert otim

I am black
I claim to be black according to my expression
I feel black when my morning moment welcomes me
I feel black while I am lifting my bare body off the sleeping bed
I feel the strange of blackness in me as I mentally stretch my muscle
I am a walking darkness as I fully open my eyes on my way to the morning bathroom
Look who is that in the mirror?
Hey I am black!
