Through My Eyes – Life as a Black Woman

…the color of my skin is with me everywhere I go/
And where you’re permitted “yes,” I am permitted “no”

Through My EyesFull of emotion…sometimes the best way to articulate the racism of our world today is through poetry. Racism is not new. It’s always been here and until people stop living in silence over what they see, it will continue. If you’ve seen racism and injustice (in person or on the news) and you’ve done nothing, then you are responsible and accountable. 

…the color of my skin

Is with me everywhere I go

And where you’re permitted “yes”

I am permitted “no”
