he said
I was too dark
my hair
too coarse
my stare
held
too much fright
my nose
too wide
and my smile
not bright

she said
I was too fat
my nails
unpolished
my face
not beat
and my tracks
not aligned

but they
never said
anything nice
about me
until I opened my mouth
and prayed for their peace
I spoke to their soul
I brought it to light
it was a shame
they held so much misery
unable to sleep
night sweats
tossing and turning
unsettled
too focused
on greed
perception
and uncessary things
so
lost they are
and lost they will be
unless
they saw the value in my words
my prayer
unbiased love
an intangible thing…
