YOUNG BROWN GIRL

Dear young brown girl

Brown skin, kissed from the sun

Brown eyes made from specks of gold

Tight-coiled curls shaped like a wand

From the roots of Africa

To the land of the “claimed” free

You are beautiful,

Young brown girl

You are beautiful despite what society thinks

Do not hate your face

Learn to embrace

Moreover, handle with grace

Sincerely, a young brown girl

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
