Brown Skin Girl~ by me


~ Brown Skin Girl ~

Your fair flawless skin

Your ocean eyes

Your sandy hair

My pitted brown skin

My demon black eyes

My night sky hair

All the time

It is in my head

Could I not ever be as beautiful as you

All the time

It is in my thoughts

Could I not change myself

Childhood years

People humming in my ears

Your brown's beautiful

So tell me why am I in tears

Thanks Lorna for sharing your thoughts....

Such a sense of sadness and yearning in this poem. I think if we are beautiful on the inside then it shines through to the outside.
