Beautiful

Black Princess

pure

without blemish

unscathed by hatred

still sees the world

from untainted eyes-

blinded from injustices

too young to know

the world will turn cold

I envy you-

purely unaware

the pigmentation

of your dark skin

will cause some

to look

into your beautiful eyes

and never

see your

beauty

your innocence

I envy.
