Blue eyes

Imagine me
Loving what I see when the
Mirror look at me
Cause I
I imagine me
In a place
With no insecurities and
I'm finally happy cause
I imagine me

I used to wanna have blue eyes
I used to wanna have blue eyes
It's like I was living two lives
Internalized self-hatred where racism in society
Is as American as apple pies
Psychologically terrorized
To the point where the mirror could even tell you lies
I would stare at my parents and wonder why my appearance was different
Used to wish I was white
Would fantasize
Kindergarten labeled retarded
Was traumatized
The pipeline that started me into homicides
Telling me I'm a felony or I'm a disability
So the natural progression for me was suicide
Aspired to it at only five
Either that or the bluest eye
Identity clash who am I
If I could speak to a younger me
I would rewrite my history
And tell me that you're beautiful 'cause you alive

Imagine me
Loving what I see when that (I didn't want to have blue eyes)
Mirror look at me
Cause I
I imagine me
(I didn't want to have blue eyes, I didn't want to have blue eyes)
In a place
With no insecurities and
I'm finally happy cause
(I didn't want to have blue eyes)
I imagine me

She always wanted to have blue eyes
She always wanted to have blue eyes
An oxymoron like true lies
Fighting demons inside
Using lightening cream to hide her complexion
Killing herself from the inside
She couldn't handle the sunshine
Her skin developed the cancer in the enzymes
What she thought was the answer
Had now threatened to cancel the melanin that's protecting her
It's a thin line
It deeply affected her when her husband died
Her innermost insecurities got magnified
African woman lost to the shadow of white supremacy
When the lighter your skin would be, it'd be glorified
Generation and centuries
We've been victimized
Started viewing ourselves through our oppressors' eyes
I wrote this verse for my auntie
I'll send these words in Ashanti
I want you to know that your culture is where your power lies

Could you imagine
Could you imagine me (woah woah)
Could you imagine
Could you imagine me (yeah yeah)
Could you imagine
Could you imagine me

Could you imagine
Could you imagine
Could you imagine me (ooh) (woah)...

Thank you because you correct this lyrics
