I can’t breathe

“I can’t breathe”, anymore!

there is so much my silence will speak,

even when you choke me till my end,


I wonder your blindness,

you don’t see me beyond my colour,

my blood, under my skin,

smells as radiant as yours,


I long to belong,

accepted in my own skin!

couldn’t we all just coexist?

my colour speaks to you,

Let me breathe!
