I AM A COLOURLESS AFRICAN by Onyinyechukwu Douglas

Introducing to you our esteemed readers is Onyinyechukwu  Douglas. A 17 years girl who believes that Africa's future is young. Can you beat that? I told you this next generation isn’t here to play. Their creativity is out of the world. Onyinyechukwu is ready to change the face Africa.
Enjoy her poem and please don’t forget to drop your comments and feedback.

I am not White
I am not Black
I am just me
Don’t use my
Looks to qualify the quality of my
Personality because you can
Never guarantee what you see is really me
I am already Afrocentric and
I do not need superfluous actions to
Qualify me as inspiring
Forget the shade and tone and
Focus on the embodied soul
There is nothing like too white
Or even black maybe it is just my personality
Wrapped up in covers of stereotypes
That make us forget we are human
We fail to realize that what brings us
 Together is greater than what divides us
Say I am a black girl who is white or
I am not black enough but such things do not exist
It is my persona and it is what makes me, me.

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
