Poetic Outlet: Skin Part 1

Skin Part 1

There is something about my black skin
that makes you wary and scary from within.

it is the history that is told
or the fact the it is better old

it is the way it gleams even in the dark
or fails to hold a careless mark

it is the way it makes others seem less
when its only job is to point out the best

it is the way it rules the sky and makes the stars forget to shine

there is something about my black skin that makes you wary and scary from within

it is the way it can shake the ground and focus the world to one small sound
it is the way it makes you think about the past we all forget and repeat.

It is the way it moves the sounds over up and around
it is the way it stands alone when the world seems only to move on.

It is the way it points to that flaw and makes another forget the law
it is the way it stops the flow of all the hatred it seems to hold
its is the way it must be to have a single person see

there is something about my black skin that make your wary and scary from within

it is the way it smiles when there are tears and holds up for generations not just years.
It is the way it pushed forward when so many got left behind
it is the way it waits for the future the unwind

because I tell you there is just something about my black skin that makes you wary and scary from within.
