Shades

My skin is five shades too fair
My eyes too hooded
My hair is three shades too light
My nose too rounded
My hair curls
My surname is missing a prefix
It’s missing history
My heritage is not enough
Because my skin is too light
My father’s father
And his mother’s mother
Do not matter
Because their hair is too light
My culture
My traditions, mean nothing
Because my surname is missing letters.
