By : Me

I don’t think they like me.

They won’t sit next to me
They won’t talk to me
Barely even look at me when I walk by.

I hate to say it,
But I think it’s cause I’m black
Cause my hair’s dark and nappy
My skin’s dark and smooth
My lips big and beautiful
My voice soft and powerful.

Cause I’m on their level
Accomplishing the same things they are
Cause I have a strength they’ll never possess
Nor will they ever understand
And an anger they’ve come to expect
But never get to see.

I don’t think they like me.
And quite frankly,
I don’t think I care.
