I am not a poet but here goes nothing. LOL! I figure format counts for something.
Book: Teenie by Christopher Grant
My braids are tight
The texture of my hair is so weird
A mixture of nationalities
I’ll be lucky if these braids last all day
Whenever I look in the mirror
I can see the traces of my ancestors
My bronze complexion
My full lips
My straight narrow nose
My green eyes
I look so…different and mixed up.
