Love Your Skin

mama ,this black skin
In this world I am a victim,I'm so lost in their system
did no wrong and got a conviction
mama, this black skin
is uncomfortable that I'm standing in,white police men
with guns in hand,saying I fit the description of treyvon
and mama,I am unarmed!!!
mama, this black skin
Signifies that I'm African,my ancestors,
Went through the trafficking
enslaved and robbed of everything
mama, this black skin
forever been traumatized,by the things
happening before our eyesYet no one seem
to hear our cries or even stop to realize
Mama ,this black skin
Love to enjoy life and the simple things
But have to work so hard,for the simple things
Humility the characteristic of kings
Mama,this black skin ,was the first of all skin
Which bringeth forth all the other skins
The mother of all skins
Mama,this black skin
Was built to stand through everything
I would never trade this skin for anything
This black skin mama is genuine.
