    Your Library of Assumptions

    Just because I have
    a certain skin tone
    doesn't mean I lived
    a certain life...
    just because my family
    is from a certain country
    doesn't mean I have
    a certain childhood
    just because I have
    a certain identity
    doesn't mean you can
    be certain about me...
    so when you pick me
    off the shelf,
    be uncertain of my cover.

    Don't act like you know
    my story when you
    haven't even read my book.
