You’re American but you’re too Black.
You’re Black but you’re too African.
You’re African but you’re too dark.
I’m sick of being told what I am and what I am not.
You say I’m too much of that but not enough of this,
Just because my looks don’t fit your stereotyped definition of what I should be.
Who are you to tell me who I should be?
Whoever gave you the right to put me in a box, anyway?
