Almost Equal

This game we were playing making faces at each other

Except I was the only one to end up on the altar

Turns out that with my name I should not have been playing this game

And also that I was a shade too dark

I tug on my freedoms before I write

Please God, please

In another life let me be blond, blue eyed and white
