worth i

Unseen.

Unheard.

Unnoticed. 

Unthanked.

Unwanted.

 

My skin is my value.

Is my skin really my value?

Tell me what it is worth.

 

They tell me my skin is worth nothing.

They tell me my skin is 

Unclean.

Unappreciated.

Unvalued.

They want to rub the brown away.

As if under the dark a light will be revealed.

Tell me why they care.

To them, My skin is a threat.

 

I say

My skin is just my skin.

My skin is not just my skin.

My skin tells a story.

My skin shows the pain.

My skin is mine and mine alone.

What is it's worth?

 

What is my skin worth

When I am worth everything?
