You seem worried Different than I perceive? Oddly enough Is it my melanin? The kinks of my curls? The grayness of my elbows? My knees? The darkness in my stare? Do you wonder why it’s there? The stare you spread? The hatred you harbor? The fear you exude? The judgment that prevails? You put it there The darkness in my eyes It doesn’t appear for anyone But those whose eyes Could replace yours
