Black and white

Half caste, mixed race, dual heritage.
Light skin, pale skinned, privileged.
Judged by the colour of my skin from both sides.
Half black, blackie and nigga.
What are you? You’re not white, your not black.
Judged by the colour of my skin from both sides.
No one understands my battles.
Ancestors enslaved by slave masters.
Ansectors enslaving my ancestors.
No one even considers my battles.
Two sides battling each other.
Both sides hating each other.
No one understands my battles.
How do I heal from this torture?
How do I make peace with my anceators?
Hatred running through my blood from my white side to my blackside.
Hatred running through my blood from my black side to my white.
No one understands my internal battles.
Black sheep.
White sheep.
No one understands my battles.
