Yin Or Yang

Yin or yang?
What to do?
Should I be like them?
Or should I be like you?
Should I follow what is right,
What I know to be true?
Of should I just stay neutral?
Act as if I don’t have a clue?
Is it okay to write,
And to be one with heart?
Or should I just take my soul,
And rip it completely apart?
For that’s what’s been done
To myself and many others
For they like myself, can’t find haven among their brothers.
Why is it bad for me to do things right?
Why does getting an “A” deem me as
“acting White”?
What can I do to escape from this plight?
I’m trapped between two worlds,
One of black and one of white.
Both must be satisfied,
And both must be appeased.
But I think that what really matters is that I am the ones that’s pleased
With my personal morals
And that I choose to lead.
