"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."


Just because I'm Haitian
Doesn't mean I eat dirt
Doesn't mean I came on a banana boat
And doesn't mean I'm poor

Just because I'm Haitian
Doesn't mean I don't know how to dress
Doesn't mean I'm a walking disease
And doesn't mean I smell like a dog's rear.

Just because I'm Haitian
Doesn't mean I'm uneducated
Doesn't mean I don't take baths
And doesn't mean I have no manners

Is that why you think less of me?
And look at me dirty?
Why are you so biased?
Just because I'm Haitian?

This was actually a class assignment. I got personal and put my heart and soul into this and shared it with my English class.
