You're An Oreo

You're An Oreo

you’re an…

Oreo.

not white enough.

not black enough.

just…

not enough.

constantly in this battle.

this…

in between.

never….

enough.

always the…

other.

the loner.

the one who talks too different.

whose likes and dislikes don’t match up

either too ‘white’.

or too ‘black’

because I’m mixed.

there’s no ‘enough’ for me.

grey.

I’m grey.

the perfect mixture of white and black.

grey.

not too white.

not too black.

forever grey.

forever living in the grey area.
