I AM MELANIN. By: Ordeezy.

I am evil because of my skin

Handcuffed my hands and feet.

Taught to hate my brothers

And feel inferior to others.
I have walked through pain and torture
For padlocks, my lips they puncture.
I have seen slavery and hell
Times when my identity fell.
I never shook, I never broke
My awakening fed fear as they choke.
I am heir to the throne
I am a god so you know.
You cannot destroy my flesh or soul
I am a thousand galaxies untold.
I am greatness, I am king
I am BLACK. I am melanin.
This poem is an intectuall proper of Michael Ordia (Ordeezy) 2017. Photo source: Google Chrome.
