I’m lost,mommy
Who am I,my roots
Daughters of Africa
Are abandoning their dark melanin
Neglect their caffeine
Hunting for skin bleach

Mommy, I’m scared
Help me
Mommy you said African hair is the best
Clear my confusion why are they all gunning for the soft silk hair

I’m lost, mommy
You said the mother tongue is my dignity,the sweet ascent of the veld
But they all reminisce the American ascent
Help me

Is being African a disgrace,is it adultery?
Mommy,tell me why they all neglect it,why are they running away from themselves
I’m lost mommy,did you lie to me
Please clear my confusion
