Like Me

Overpowered with a strong desire to read

She took a trip to her local bookstore

In search of a potion to subdue her need

She skimmed the shelves

and scoured the aisles

Hunting down a cover with a character

To her dismay a problem arised

She had difficulty locating a character that matched her outter

She went to the clerk to voice her issue

But they didn’t understand her dilemma

Reading was about using your imagination

Just image that the protagonist matched your complexion

She sighed at their reaction and left the store with empty hands

To upset to further inform that she desired a book

That highlighted her perfections

Because unlike some she knew her hue wasn’t a negation

and wanted a book that matched that reflection.
