You Hate Me

You hate me

Because my skin is dark

As if the color of my skin

Determines whether or not I do my part.

You hate me

Because my skin is too light

As if because of that I can’t join the fight

You hate me

Because my hair is too thick

Envious that growing hair like this takes no trick.

You hate me

Because my hair isn’t straight

An all-natural woman you won’t even date.

You hate me

Because I’m different

But don’t you know my difference is what makes me relevant?

You hate me

Because I don’t fit in

I don’t have to be with your crowd in order to win.

You hate me

Only because it’s easy.

You hate me

Only because you don’t know me.

You hate me

Because you’re too afraid to see

That what you hate and critique

Are the things that make me unique.
