My Skin

They´re staring at me …

Yes. Their eyes staring at me. Often. On the streets.

Why? What´s wrong?

Weeks I did not know why.

Until couple weeks ago I started to notice.

I look at myself on the mirror.

My skin.

Yes. My skin color.

It´s getting more brown…

and browner.

More than theirs.

From pale to exotic, colleagues said.

Oh, Dear.
