Skin (#13)

I love my skin
My daddy, rest his soul
Gave me my color
However, when others
See me
They see
Affirmative action
There is no way that I
Simply worked hard
And was encourage to achieve
Like any other
Non-melanated individual
I am passing this semblance of advantage on
Like a baton
For the race
I didn't run
