I have a thicker saturation of melanin
Under my epidermis.
That doesn't change me
From being the human I am.
I was held the way you were
By my heavenly father
Before he dropped me into my mother's womb.
I have not the painter's nose you sport.
But my features are not the benchmark
Of the person I am.
The iris of my eyes are a deeper shade
But I see the world just as well as you can.
My Hair might not be tresses of silk
But the frizz does not distort my brain.
Give me a chance
For I might not have the first recommendation
That comes disguised as beauty.
Look in and take a glance
My inside is lighted with a clear conscience.
Your appraisal is only as deep as my skin.
My character has unfathomable depths.
My integrity does not get tarnished
By my dark skin.
I still am the same species as you are.
Judge not, because I appear ugly.
My soul shall still live
Long after the beauty you care about perishes.

What do you want? Can you answer this question in a blink? The answer that comes out in a blink is probably what you really want. Or do you feel so content that you don't feel the need of anything? Okay, Let me ask the question to myself. Do I feel so content that I don't feel the need of anything?? Hmm....let's see - I am well fed, well clothed, well decked in my closet which has only a handful of "I feel and look comfy in this" outfits, handbags big and small and no, thankfully no shoes since I am not a shoe and car fanatic. Spending money on these two is a Nah, Nah, no no. Anything comfortable and convenient(ly priced) serves the purpose. I might want some eyeliner since it spruces up my non existent eyes - but I love my pale mountain dweller eyes since I am too lazy to put on the liner. So anyway, what do I want?
