Hey Melisa...Not sure if i am the only one but cannot view the links that you posted? ? But here is something for your consideration...

Black Or White


Am I Black, Am I White…

What does it matter?

For I see you as a person,

You breath, you bleed, you fight,

Who am I to judge you, in this plight?

To live this life as we do,

Why should society so judge you to?

For you are just like me,

A human being who wants to live through,

This life that was given to you,

So… I take this life that was given to me,

And hope that it will be,

A footprint on this earth,

That will be true to me and you,

And will be remembered, as I’m still so blue.

As what does skin color…really mean to you….? ?

    Is it ok if we entitle the poem... 'So Im black... Or White'? Because our editors need it in strictly 'So I'm' format.. please and thank you.
    Sincerely,
