(nor lose possession of what thou owest)

maybe I am a sensitive guera,
a person who wished they had dark brown skin
because I didn't notice the difference
between me and my people or you

when I look in the mirror I see spirit
nothing on me has much color or tone
does that make me lesser than a human
I don't have thin skin I have nerve endings

they open to the universe full strength.
Trees speak to me I hear their wilterness.
Like Funes the Memorious by Borges.
I can't watch things die off and stay silent

To speak of my color is nonsense when
I have no color cause I have no skin.
