Many people don't know me, but I don't know who me is either.
I can't tell you if I'm the loud or rude stereotypical black girl because Mom would say I need to speak up. I'm using my library voice with strangers.
I can't tell you I'm the introvert because I like good company and publicly share my thoughts aloud.
I was born into a world that judges me before they get to know me. And try to attack the concept of happiness. I need it most in this filthy world we live in. I need you. Because you listened and didn't say a word. Just you being there was enough to make me believe you understood the troubles in my sentences and words spoken in a foreign language. 
I want myself back but I can't remember who I was.

|| Ebonee desires life to the fullest content as a brown skin but is constantly faced with life's realities that can never turn into her sudden dreams. As she is constantly faced with comparisons of her beauty, cruel judgment, and love she didn't expect it to turn out so unplanned in her premeditated life. ||

|| Then there's Beau, the mysterious guy she met in at the restaurant, who lives such a different world outside of the way Ebonee sees it. He sees "brown skin" as men dressed in beige khaki jumpsuits that take his life and family away in front of his eyes. Little did he know life was going to turn around and slap him on the cheek with eyes wide open. ||
