am I human
I have roots which come from ancient times
Way before the continents split up
I dance to the beat of African sounds
Is there a skin tone for ethnicity
for my ethnicity?
is there a language for race
Am I counted in the race?
If I was dark skinned people say I’d be Africana
If i had a straight nose I’d be of the indigenous kind
but my family is a deep kind
dark skinned, chocolate and cinnamon
olive skinned, high yellow and pale white
I don’t know my color
I seem to feel
To be color blind
I’d say I’m human
Quite possibly a Spaniards child
sounds like countries to me
So am I the Spanish I speak?
Am I the slant of my eyes?
Or the stubble on my nose?
Am I the big lip kind?
Or am I human
Is there a human in me
