“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!
