I wish the color of my skin was a blessing in society's eyes.
Just because I'm not freak'n pale.
Maybe, if I was darker I would get more hate.
I don't know much about football.
I'm not a VSCO girl, and I don't need to get a tan for the instagram post.
I'm a girl of color.
I'm so native that it doesn't even look like I speak spanish.
Or, so they say.
I'm a mix of Native American, Aztec, Indian, and Mexican.
And, it's probably true.
My hair is so black like a raven's.
My eyes look coal black, but they're chocolate brown in the sunlight.
This is me.
Maybe, they want someone lighter and more fair.
But, I can't be that.
I can only be me.
