Love Yourself, Love Your Melanin, Love Your Black Skin

Love yourself, love your melanin, love your black skin,
Love yourself, love your roots, love your non-white complexion,

Despite the media’s fascination with white supremacy,
Vogue and Cosmopolitan’s satisfaction with bleach skinned travesty,

All of your curls, each perfectly shaped ring causes oceanic jealousy,
Every ancestor tossed in the Atlantic sings a hymn serenading black perfection,

Trace your finger tips up and down your physique to remind yourself you are a queen,
Whose dark skin is worth more than all the gold and stars combined,

Love yourself, love your melanin, love your black skin,
Love yourself, love your roots, love your non-white complexion,
