Disparate One

Straight brown hair, chinky eyes

Oh, is it me you despise?

 

I keep my head high, 

despite all your lies.

 

I may not look like you,

but I am a human, too.

 

Who says my yellow painted skin

is considered a sin?

 

Always hiding, 

not necessarily lying.

 

To all you say, I only nod

but don't worry, it's all a facade.

 

I am different than you all,

but that doesn't mean I will fall.

 

My golden skin tone

doesn't make me feel alone.

 

I am better than your harsh words,

although it is quite absurd.

 

Is it truly a facade or a front?

Am I now being too blunt?

 

If I wear this mask,

then your winning will last.

 

Stronger, wiser, more confident,

this is just a consequent.

 

You've taught me being a minority

only gives me more authorirty.

 

I will not hide or no longer cry,

I will only say goodbye.
