NPM Day 12 No More "Hiding"


We are so much more than the color of our skin

but more often than not the lines are drawn thin.

We're put into boxes so we "fit in",

fighting battles daily that we cannot win.

I'm here to start a revolution.

If you'd pay attention there's an easy solution.

Love.

My children alone are quite a combination,

African American

Native American

Puerto Rican

and Irish

If you saw us would you know?

No.

No one knows what we hold inside

you'd rather judge us by our hide.

Why?

Because you're a coward.
