Beautifully blended

Lands of my mother color my skin bold. Pale and freckled.
my skin remembers the lush lands of old and i am swarmed with Irish blood.
Tanned and sun kissed, like my mothers people, 
i am tainted by her strong Italian blood. 
Soft as silk, i'm bred from her french roots. Creative and lush.
Skin like my mothers heritage, i am born of white blood.

Curls from my fathers past, native and strong, my ethnic shines through.
Indian, strong, and proud. Smokey and dark like the ancient people i fall from,
my gaze is forever lasting. Light and brown, i am rich with African blood. 
Long, tall, and lean like my fathers homage, i am born or intricate lineage.

Queens from my past lives, bow before my roots, with depths that reach far into the earth. i am born of all and belong to none. Blended of several bloodlines and crafted from many cloths, i belong to all the legends of the world but is known by no names. Past lives that relate to the slaves of the Americas but known by kings rich with English blood, i belong to both sides but regarded by none. Feared by their Egyptian masters my forefathers bore the pain of the desert, but i am remembered as scholars in the scrolls of the tombs. I am blended with all the beauty of the world and blended with all the wrongs. I wear a mask of my fathers past, but am rich with my mothers ancestry. 

I am Beautifully Blended.

    That last statement is very intuitive. You should be proud of all of your heritage the Italian, the Irish, the Indian, French blood and the African that makes you 'u'. There is nothing wrong with being mixed. You should celebrate your heritage. I know that's not easy to do to accept all of yourself. You wear a mask of you dad's past which I understand means he is mixed with African that happened through interrelations between different races here in America and can be traced back to Slavery.

    Race is a social construct, and to some extent we are all mixed, only diverged and is re-emerging as travel has speeded up. The diversity is the beauty itself. Very nice poem and welcome, hope to read some more of your poems.

    I truly agree, we are all of mixed backgrounds in one way or another. Thank you for your response and I'm glad you found it relate-able, and enjoyable.
