Ink on My Skin
written by: Scott Kitchens
Why you want to judge me by the ink on my skin,
Why you see me for a color or a threat,
How do you see me any different than you,
How do you form thoughts of hate and regret?
I am the same as your neighbor, your cousin, your brother,
I have the same right to be who I am and be someone you should know,
Do I not walk just like you, talk like you, eat like you,
Do I suffer, feel, or hurt with the stones you throw?
It’s ok because you judge but will be judged by your actions,
It’s ok because my life is on my skin and I wear it proud,
Today I have overcome a lot and beat what has come against,
And today, I won’t be judged by the ink on my skin.
