Am I invisible?
Because you ignore me,
Am I that shadow on the ground?
Because you're walking over me.

Am I camouflaged?
Because you deliberately turn your back on me,
Am I alive?
Because you act as though I don't exist.

Am I dead?
Because you look at me as though I'm a spirit,
Am I just a colour?
Because you judge me as though I am.

Am I unwanted?
Because you make me feel that way.
Am I just a fish in the sea?
Because you caught me, but then you let go.

The colour of my skin doesn't defy the person inside,
Whether I'm Brown, Black, Yellow or White;
The words you use to hurt me,
Cannot take away my pride.
This poem mainly links in with prejudice and discrimination.

All this judgement on other lives needs to stop.
