Vitiligo Is The Situation (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • There is this condition,
  • Vitiligo is the situation,
  • turning thee into white,
  • it’s depigmentation might!
  • Instead of millennia long,
  • for evolution to grow strong,
  • Vitiligo has done a miracle,
  • thy lifespan is just credible.
  • As Ferguson erupted,
  • a nation is divided,
  • black and white fight,
  • you’re wrong and I’m right!
  • Oh, the misery in Missouri,
  • nobody has yet said sorry,
  • the confusion grows the more,
  • even I feel confusing evermore.
  • If you’re white in a fight,
  • they say white power’s rights,
  • if you’re black in anger,
  • they say you’re pretender.
  • As the confusion gets grander,
  • the truth is lost among the strangers,
  • instead of getting lost in a tale,
  • we need to hammer down the nail.
  • (nail stands for truth — getting to the truth)
  • Don’t be bothered by skin color,
  • don’t divide neighbors by color,
  • for Vitiligo is the miracle,
  • black and white in one is credible!
