When you talk about
The color of someone’s skin
It offends them

They have to face the hardships of disliking their skin
And experiencing depression
Because you have better skin

Lighter skins means purity
The purity of being light
And being whole

The module of beauty
And the mold of love

My skin of the ugliest colors
As I try and become lighter
And stay out of the sun
And you a tan
That vanishes after days

This piece inspired me by when my friends would make fun of me, because they are lighter than me.

Thank you very much! It is also a problem in society. People have come along way to be equal as others and people just want to pursue happiness. It's the inverse the darker people want to have lighter skin and lighter people want to have darker skin.

Your friends are either very ignorant or jerks. Dark skin is beautiful! I have a similar problem, but my skin is light. You are an awesome writer!  :D
