see ME©


You may only look at the dark pigmentation of my skin
You may only look at the full contours of my lips
You may only look at the rounded fatness of my nose
You may only look at whatever creative way I choose to wear my hair today
Nubian curls, afro, braids or just that low flow

You don’t see ME
ME in all my diversity

See the person that I am
Not the person you perceive this skin color to represent
Check the fake smiles and the hypocritical relations
Drop the derogative names and the questioning gaze
End criminalization and discrimination
See beyond
See the person that I am
Yes, I am black
There’s more to me than the color of my skin

see ME
ME in all my diversity
