Growing up with Black family and friends, shade was something we talked about a lot. Luckily for me, colorism didn’t affect me as blatantly as other Black people. Part of that is my light-skinned privilege, but also because I grew up in a family with off-whites, the beigest of beiges, caramels, molasses, and soots.My crushes were usually on brown-skin sisters, but my preferences have relaxed…

LIFE

Inspired by NOYCE by Via Rosa

LIFE

Life is a metaphor, that I met before 

like my current bad luck is cuz I lost a bet before, 

like I was good king and still lost my head before, 

when I lose my head, wanna go and grab a hefty sword 

and take off on a epic quest, run across a deadly horde 

and slay em all, then pray em all to be blessed before 

their bodies turn to dust and their soul join the stars,

And form into a constellation as I write these bars 

Wanna be a comedian, prolly was a joke before, 

wanted to bang all well, probably was a folk before, 

never did a single drug, probably cooked some coke before, 

Now I be quiet, prolly spoke a thunderbolt before, 

Now i be that nice guy, prolly was a jerk before 

Preyin on yo self-esteem, now I be a herbivore, 

Ben told me I’m a leader, but I didn’t want to be

Prolly cuz I used to be the front of the herd before

Sunrise is beautiful, like when a woman arch her back, 

Path is straight and narrow like an arrow when I archer that, 

but I feel out of place, fake, want no part in that, 

when an eagle flies wit ducks, pretty soon he starts to quack, 

Forrest Gump dreams, they make fun, but I’m runnin shit, 

mo money mo problems… man, that sound dumb as shit. 

Give me all yo problems then, so I can go flex somewhere

Grass is always greener, D said that grass connect somewhere 

Then I met this girl, I coulda sworn she was heaven sent, 

Bribed Cupid, told him hit her up with the Legalis, 

She fell in love, then I swooped her up on my Pegasus, 

rode off to the sun, towards that fire that’s forever lit

Now our name is couple next to Love in an almanac

Life would never be a bitch if you never call her that

Songs and raps can heal, I just hope I do this some more

Wanna make a melody, was probably the music before

391537_3849681517417_1678733839_n“It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness,—an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from…
