Melanity

If you ever saw me on the street,
You’d never guess I’m foreign.

You’d never guess my nationality..

Melanity

Yes, the origin of my rich dark skin

Dark as the night they say

Yesterday it wasn’t normal
Today it sometimes is
Tomorrow my children might show it off

or curse their mama for not being mixed

I’m not sorry

I don’t want acceptance

I don’t want awareness

I’ve been here long enough.
