White and Black Skin

In her white skin she shined a light on my black experience. She gave me the tools and understanding in order for me to transverse my own darkness.

She allowed me the freedom to feel as she gave me the logic behind it. She allowed the space of understanding and compassion.

I was given a shoulder that didn’t look like mine.

Was that just a coincidence? of course not. Her white skin and understanding allowed me to identify with my black skin and the beauty of it.

With her white skin and my black skin we become one. To shine a light where there is darkness.
