What is a Mariah?

I am a kind, mixed child 

I wonder if I will ever be excepted 

I hear them talk about me 

I see them laugh 

I want to belong some where

I am kind, mixed child 


I pretend everything is fine

I feel mixed emotions

I touch my hair when im nervous 

I worry about who likes me 

I cry on the inside

I am kind, mixed child


I understand I am a child of three races

I say I love my roots

I dream that one day it wouldnt matter

I try to speak spanish 

I hope that people would not be so cruel 

I am kind, mixed child
