I am a rainbow full of colors

By Jackie C.

I am a rainbow full of colors light and dark

that contain rich luscious texture

smooth and rough

depending on how you see them.

I am Latina containing

Salvadoran

Mexican

and dirt that holds particles of my treasured land.

I am full of questions,

anxious and wondering if one day

true judgement will be made.

I am infuriated by the men who choose

and think it is okay to give us

names that they think

suit us right.

What I want, questionable,

what is it that I want

everyday my needs change to wants

and my needs are pushed aside wanting

wanting

and never really receiving.

Why is it that someone who I never meet

up until a couple of months

can decide what best suits me

and decide if my home is the best

place for me.

What right

or who gives them the right

to decide where y and donde

should live

and she has never even met

mi madre.

Now or Never

by Moiney

I know change

I know change

is here to come

I know that I am

A strong Black woman

I know that I am more

Than just a back bone

I know that I am ready

To have a place that I can

Call home here now and

Forever. I am in a daily

Struggle with myself and

This world that I am still

Not developed in properly

Or happily. I am angry

Cause I need some one

Anyone who can say they

Love me. I am not thankful

Cause not one ever taught

Me to be grateful or hopeful

And I'm not very accepting of

The thing that I can not change

Now or ever, or do I know

What ever is or is ever gone

Come now or never.

I am Brown,

by Colieon

I am Brown,

Caramel Chocolate Chip Honey Dip

African American 100% woman

I feel like a tree with no leaves

a skater with no skates

&

a dealer with Big Bank and a mind to

contemplate.

I want my dreams to become Reality.

I want to go home

So I can finish the mission I was on

And leave these Ponk Bitches to Rome.

I am the color green

by Malai

I am the color green.

I represent that color cause that's the only color

I chase on the outs which is money.

I also am the color black

cause I like to be by myself.

I am Samoan,

young attitude young

I am feeling very lonely

and I also feel trapped cause I'm in

this facility and I can't do

what I want to do.

I want to be put back into society

to try to turn my negative ways

into a positive role model.

I also want to be with my man

at home in Oakland.

Another thing I want is to

get respected

cause I'm tired of respecting females

and they don't respect me.

So that tells me they want to go to another level.

The other thing that I hate

is when cops always want to fuck with people

for no sort of reason.

The other thing I wish for is to never come back

into this weak fuck up place.

Ya heard.
