"Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead." -Charles Bukowski

My dark, brown skin juxtaposed with
a sea of white,
as I have been the token black girl
for all my life.
And truth be told,
this act is getting old;
I just really need another black girl
who understands my strife.

The author's comments:

I've been the only black girl in my classes for several years, and to be honest, I wish I had someone there who shared both my culture and struggles. There is a special connection between black people, one that cannot be forged anywhere else.
