‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé


My hair is brown.
Yours too.
My skin is ebony.
Yours too.
My body is petite.
Yours too.
My dress is plain.
Yours too.
My ribbon is black.
Yours too.
My boyfriend kisses me.
I mean, you.
Perhaps, he thought
That I was you...

Well, diversity is important. It’s not actually what keeps us from each other. What keeps us from each other is discrimination. Without diversity, nothing would be special and unique. Everything would seem… dead, wouldn’t it?

Oh! I didn't get this until I read it a second time. I love the message behind it. You strung it in so subtly, but I think that made a very good effect. I completely agree with you. :)

Wow, this is kinda deep; I agree with the former comment in saying that the twist at the end was very interesting, I can't say much else. Great poem :)

Lovely twist at the end! It really packs a punch. This almost felt like one of those songs little girls sing for jumprope or double dutch, until the end when it took a more mature turn

Hmmm, very interesting! I like the way you presented your ideas in a simple way without hammering them into the reader.

If mankind perished utterly
And Spring herself, when she woke at down,
Would hardly know that we were gone." ~Sara Teasdale
(Yea, I know, it's kind of deep, but I kind of dig it.))

I really like this poem. The way it twists your brain around- especially at the end. Good job! :)
