B.L.M.

They say you wouldn’t like me because the
Color of my skin.

They had you grow up thinking that my pigment
Was a sin.

Instead of showing truths; that we come from
Rulers and Kings.

They made you hate my outsides, instead of
Loving what’s within.

Educate Yourselves: Don’t just choose this guy because he’s whiter than I am or decide to write that man because he looks more different than me. Trust me, I have just as much; if not more love to give.

Black Lives Matter.
