Black Is Not All Me This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Those who are ignorant to the fact
What is Black?
A color by nature
Race by force
Thereby creating a force of nature
Black is a movement
A scary thought
Provisional change with no light
Yet you call me it?
As if it were a thing
Shadow of a doubt
Generalizing one class
But no – not all
Or all but one
Me
Call me as you see
Brown-skinned, African-American
But Black is not all I'll be
