Race Wars

Despite the negativity associated with being African American

I must continue to fight the odds of becoming yet another stereotype

At times I see no point this but at others it is centered on proving a point

Proving that I am capable and that I do deserve to be treated as an equal being

Could you imagine being questioned on your intelligence level solely on the color of your skin?

Well I can, it is a reality that I have to face daily

And at times it can become quite troublesome

The weight of an entire race is often placed upon my shoulders

But if I refuse to step up who’s to say that others will not do the same

Despite my conflicting opinions I must continue to move forward

Hoping for the best

In search of some inner sense of equality that will make my external circumstances seem a lot better
