Being a person 

Of color

Means 

Not having a safe space

To rely upon 

To escape 

The troubles of the world 

And what sucks 

Is that because of others 

You have to 

Give Up that 

One space 

That you fit in 

Because 

The comfort 

That you once 

Found by 

Being with others

Just like you

Was compromised 

Due to other’s 

Narrow minded 

Views

Now that space sits 

Empty 

And you feel 

Lonely 

The community 

Has disbanded
