I am Just Human

You look a little shaken

Disturbed and afar taken

You even think I am alien

I am just human

 

On the streets when I walk

With your eyes staring stalk

Muffled speech whisper talk

I am just human

 

My skin color your concern

Whenever I pass you must turn

Your mind’s questions I can discern

I am just human

 

Since birth I have had questions

For my parents endless petitions

The society has no submissions

I am just human

 

My skin color is an issue

No pigmentation in my tissue

Black is only on my shoe

I am just human

 

 

Albinism is no disability

And I am not a commodity

Dad, mum, I am no liability

I am just human

 

Treat me like you do others

Mwalimu teach me like the others

Sisters and nieces am just a brother

I am just human

 

I have accepted my condition

I am happy with my situation

Albinism is just a color

I am just human

  1. So nice of you dear to dedicate such a beautiful piece to these beautiful souls who are rejected because of something that isn’t their fault….
