Jan 25
Melanin shields my body
From the harsh
Ever present sun above;
Granting me assurance
Anytime i catch her rays
That cancer, shall
Not prevail over me.

My covering
Halts my youth
From crumbling,
Compelling all
To speculate my age.

Europe's offsprings;
Do not gaze at my blackness
With contempt,
Nor caste judgment onΒ 
Me when a lover of trouble with
My complexion goes forth
Stirring trouble,
For all ethnicities
House impurities.
