Dark Skinned Girls

Mon, 04/11/2016 - 13:00 -- Zizi16

This is for dark skinned girls who ain't as loved as their dark skinned counterparts

This is for dark skinned girls who can only dream for the love they need from society

This is for dark skinned girls who dance and sing and are things of beauty

For the Diana Rosses, For the Ella Fitzgeralds, For the Gabrielle Unions, and Naomi Campbell

I can't name them all but I can praise them

For the dark skinned stars in the night who shine down as I sleep

Show dark skinned black girls and women beauty and light for the world to see
