Be Proudly Black.

"Put down the bleach,
Your skin is not dirt that needs to be cleaned out,
You are comprised of sienna,chestnut &
Warm mahogany.
Dark as the night sky,constellations are
Tucked neatly underneath your bones.

Your skin reminiscent of the hot chocolate
That warms winter nights.
Like rings around a tree stump,you too have
History etched into your melanin.
Don’t let the glaring whiteness,blind you from the beauty that you are" !!
