"Our Deepest Fear is Not That we are inadequate, It is that we are powerful beyond measure."

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
Call me as you see
Brown-skinned, African-American
But Black is not all I'll be

I felt very distinct about my heritage and I hate that its distinguished by just a color
