Every single day,
People passing me by in the street,
Shout insults at me:
“Why’s it dark all of the sudden?”
If I’m with a friend,
They shout things like,
“Get away from her! It’s contagious!”
“I hope your heart isn’t as dark as your face!”
“Milk and chocolate!”
I get these insults every day,
It really got to me as a kid.
I got really depressed,
Because people were constantly calling me black, Sudanese, and other such things.
I literally get this every single day.
I really love the way I look and my skin tone,
But the insults are really cruel.
And it’s honestly disgusting when it comes from someone close,
Even if they’re just kidding,
