LOOK at me.
STARE at me.
PIERCE with your judging eyes
Through the layer of creamy brown skin
So chocolaty it can melt into a pool of thick consistency
So D E L I C I O U S
You can’t restrain yourself from trying to get
What more you crave
Is not the hyperpigmentation or blemishes
From a black girls past.
Journey beyond the kinky fro
With an attitude of its own to be admired,
Each a strand of the endless hopes I have for my future.
Journey past the
non “on fleek” brows
And ebony eyes
And juicy full lips.
Crave my s o u l and when you find it,
I beg of you to resist the urge
Fight the temptation
To consume it completely,
This cacao nut,
This seed of my existence.
Initially after the your first bite
You will get a sugar high, and there is no turning back.
Here you are in HEAVEN.
There is the strength of a teen
Who is making mistakes every day, but is still trying to find the way,
Will not always get the perfect grade, but can appreciate the efforts made.
With a forceful drive to succeed, without a selfish need.
A cold hand, but a warm heart,
A FLAWLESS DIVA from the start.
Aggravating as heck (but my mom still loves me),
Never EVER going to change for anybody
