I am Afrolatinasian dating

I am fresh off the boat but I was born here and I'm looking for a place with my type of acceptance

Of a girl with an afro and a bindilost and confused a muse to racists

They would scream terriorist and at lunch they would all sit and laugh and say I ate their pets

Accompanied with the familiar y'alls while my lips stumbled over English

I come from a boat that has floated  historically onboth the Atlantic and Pacific oceans

Human cattle, spices,women, riches and Human cattle

I come from explotiation and rape and there  will always be lingers of and English slang over my Spanish words

I am far from Dominican summers and the whispers of "Ella tengo raza mixto"

As they glanced upon my lioness hair and pondered to what produced me

I'm fresh off the boat but I was born here and I'm looking for a place with my type of accpetance

my lips have experienced its first romantic endeavors in both sexes

her brown eyes mimicked mine- stale and serious- while his jumped about rapidly

I've enjoyed them both;however, I will never admit it to my grandparents.

I am from my grandparents that have no differences or similarites

besides they want me to marry young so they can see it to a man that looks like me and a woman's place has limitaions

I am from my parents they have difference or similarites

besides they want me to marry young so they ca see it to a man that looks like me and know the limitations of a woman

His  blue eyes jumped rapaidly when we kissed 

He believed it was tangible that I atteneded Easter mass with large amounts of family

the I like my frog legs with Cajun spices with hush puppies

I am far more than Indian summers and confusion to how I spoke Urdu so well

As they glance at my lioness hair and wonder to what produced me

Intangible to the idea I looked up to the heavens deviod of blasphemy and prayed before Brahma 

As they did

Intangible that I enjoyed my frog legs with Cajun spices and hush puppies

As they did

Intangible that I attended mass and Easter Sundays with large amounts of family

As they did

Intangible that I emerged from accident but I'm inclusive for all their cultures

He believed it was tangible that I emerged by accident but I'm inclusive of all their cultures
