I say I'm Love.
Two different people came together
Because of love.
When people stare at my light brown skin
I say I'm me,
Who can be anything he wants.
When people touch my hair, I say
There's so much more to me than my beautiful crown.
Respect what's here,
All of me, not just what you see.
When people mistake me with the black boy next to me who looks nothing like me,
I say I'm different than everyone else
And I'll always be different.
So are you.
When people walk up to me and start speaking a language they think I know,
I say stop assuming who you think I am.
Don't categorize me like I’m a piece of fruit
‘Cause I’m not one.
If you want to know who or what I am
I’ll tell you.
I am love, beautiful “non ordinary” love.
I am a rainbow, so many different, amazing colors.
But most importantly, I am me.
