MIXED MINDED

By HereComesThePain

Black girl labeled from the white man's world
born from a white woman's pearl.
constantly looking to lable me perceptions awry constantly judging me.
black or english ?
it's your cup of tea.
dipping into races on a regular basis
bloodlines intertwine DNA redefined.
Lines dotted by scars connected by chain
armed with vaccinations and medications
they're coming strait for your brain
self inflicted stay restricted
cognitive dissonance driving me insane
black people scream black power
but in white lies they all shower...
Roots wiped clean..
feminism
loss of man's self esteem loss of men
I'll say that again .. loss if men.
you can but i won't play pretend.
my morals and perceptions on that dont bend.
and by that i mean this... two men shouldn't kiss.
the wagon to homophobia is on it's way but before you get on it. you look tired physically re-wired i gave you a fun-da-mental chair so go and sit on it.
