Make up and Race

When I look in the mirror
I must face
That all I can see
Is my American Race
But I am not a disgrace
I am thankful
For my ethnic beauty and grace
Although I cover and try to erase
With trial and error
The scars of racism slashes upon my face
I am diversity, I am human,
And I belong in this place
Right here and right now I am me,
I am the American Race
