Mulatto

BRIGHT SKIN
LIGHT SKIN 
BROWN SKIN
DARK SKIN
NO MATTER YOUR TONE
KNOW THAT WE ARE ALL KIN
SNOW BUNNY 
PINK TOE
WHITE GIRL WIGGER
THEY TELL ME IM CONFUSED... 
 MY MOTHER  A CAUCASION AND MY FATHER A NIGGER
REDBONE
HONEYCOMB
CARMEL COMPLEXION
I AM NOT DEFINED BY YOUR MISCONCEPTION
I AM BEATY AT IT BEST 
ONE FOR A RARE COLLECTION
I CAN NOT BE DEFINED IN YOUR MIND 
OR DENIED BY YOUR TIMES
YES MY SKIN MAY BE BLACK 
BUT BEWARE THE THIN LINE
IT WASNT I WHO CROSSED 
IT ISNT ME WHO IS LOST
I SEE BEYOND YOUR LABELS
BEYOND YOUR NEED TO BELONG
IM NOT HELD UP ON COLOR
NO THAT IS NOT MY CROSS...
TO BEAR...
I REEK OF THE ONESS 
YOU CLAIM TO CREATE
I EMBODY THE WHOLNESS
YOU TRY TO EMULATE
IM NOT TORN BY RACE
NOT TRYING TO FIND MY PLACE
I WAS CREATED IN LOVE
AND THAT IS INFINITE IN SPACE
I SOAR BEYOND SIMPLE MINDS
ONES THAT CANT SEEM TO GRASP 
THE CONCEPT OF HUMANESS
OR FREE AT LAST
FREE FROM THE MINDSET OF HATERED
STILL LINGERING FROM OUR PAST
OF LITTLE BLACK GIRLS WITH CURLS IN THIER HAIR
OR BLUE EYED LITTLE WHITE GIRLS WHO SEEM TO HAVE NO CARE
THE BOTH OF THEM ARE ME 
OR DO YOU NOT SEE
I AM YOU, IS THAT YOUR BIGGEST FEAR
IM STILL THERE
YOU CAN NOT ERASE ME FROM THIS WORLD
YOU DONT WANT TO SHARE
CANT CREATE A DIFFRENCE
 AND SAY YOU WANT TO BE FAIR
YOU CAN NOT GROW
YOU CAN NOT BREATHE
I WILL NOT RUN AND
I WILL NOT LEAVE
I AM THE PERFECT EBONY AND IVORY
BLAZING BEAUTY SKIN OF INDIGO
I AM YOUR FUTURE
I AM MULATTO
