Happy To Be Brown Poetry

It Was A Summer Break
I Was 12. . . At My Aunt's Place. . .
With A Dozen Of My Older Cousins. . .

You Know When You Are The Youngest
And Your Cousins. . .
Just Rag You To Make Tea Or Coffee For Everyone. . .

So My Oldest Cousin Asked Me To Make Tea. . .

First. . .

I Felt Nervous Because
I Knew How To Make Tea
But I Had Never Made For Anyone But My Parents. . .

So As I Ran Into The Kitchen
My Cousin Called Me Back To Say
Make Tea Of Your Sister's Colour Not Yours. . .

As My Sister Was The Fairer One. . .

Till Now The Realisation Never Came That
I Was The Darker Sibling. . .

As I Went To The Kitchen
And Filled The Pot With Water
My Tears Ran Down. . .

I Couldn't Help Add More Milk
To The Tea Leaves. . .
To Make The Tea Look Fairer. . .

I Must Admit That I Felt Miserable. . .

Until I Was 16. . .
And I Started Doing Theatre
And We Went To London
To Perform For A Show. . .

To My Utter Surprise
Every Single Person That I Met There. . .

Told Me. . .

Oh. . . What A Beautiful Skin You Have. . !

First I Was Surprised But Slowly
I Started To Believe Them. . .

As. . .
I Would Stand In Front Of The Mirror
Looking At My Self. . .

I Would Make Sure To Put Less Makeup
So It Doesn't Cover My Skin. . .

I Feel Happy To Be Brown. . !

I Must Admit That
Most Of My Confidence
About My Skin Colour
Came From Working With People
From Other Countries. . .

What Can I Say. . ?
About The Obsession. . ?
About The Fair Skin In Mine. . ?

But I Am Glad That
I Never Used A Fairness Cream
To Lighten My Skin Colour. . .

But I Know Of So Many People
Who Were Rejected In Matrimony
Because Of Being Brown Skinned. . .

So Many People
Who Lost On Jobs
Because Of Being Dark Skinned. . .

But Today. . .

As I Lay In The Sun
And The Rays Of The Sun
Enter Every Single Pore Of My Body. . .

I Want To Love Every Part Of Me
I Feel Happy In My Skin. . .

I Feel Happy To Be Brown. . .
