"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

- Taylor Swift

little brown girl

No, don't cry
little brown girl

You are not allowed to cry
We don't want to think

Of you

As a being made of stars
Like us

Crying tears of oceans
And oceans of tears

Like us

You are not one of us
You do not have the right

Go away,
little brown girl

Disappear into the night

We do not want to look at you
And be reminded

little brown girl

That your heart swells
And bleeds

In this big white world
