Beauty

You can look
and not see
The Beauty
in my current
Web of Identity

You can look
and not see
The deep-rooted
biases
upon which
we've
structured our societies

Cities built on
discrimination
and
inequality
Feeding
racist
sentiment
without
question
Finality

Cities built
foundationally
to Hold-back
and Deny
access to
resources
and opportunities

We call them home
but they're not really
for You and I
or
they could be
More for You
than I

You can look
and not see
(although I'm standing right here)
Me

Beauty
