A poem on identity

It defines you they said

The blend of colours on the yellow side of the colour wheel

Never fully set in stone

Changing with the sun

It defines you they said

The yellow shade over your skin

Your identity, your roots

Like a display board showing who you are

Where you came from

How far you can go

It defines you they said

The colour of your skin

The first thing people see

Forgetting everything else that is yellow

The beauty hidden within

It defines you they said

No matter where you go

Who you grow up to be

They lied.
