BLACK SKIN

BLACK SKIN

A Poem by COLLYMORE
"

It's an experience worth undertaking to walk in the skin of someone else; especially so if yours gives you and unwarranted and unfair advantage.

"

By Stanley Collymore

 

Ridiculed and scorned it was you

That gave me the inspiration

To carry on - for in their

Intense hatred of you,

Your foes revealed

Too their innate

Fear of you!
