MY BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL 1 (WOMAN)
From the diversity of my complexion's tone
and the uniqueness of my structured cheekbones.
My Black Is Beautiful!
The bold hue of my skin
I am a woman who displays courage from within.
My skin color is the strength of royal pride
I dare not hide.
Because I love me and the color that I represent
for it's a symbol of eloquent.
Look at me, there is nothing like my features…
What you see is neither an illusion nor a delusion.
It's a stunning gift of natural beauty from God,
so don't dismiss.
Black is the color of power and it is prestigious.
It exemplifies confidence and style
which is a blessing by my ancestors of the Nile.
I am beautiful from the inside out.
These words in this poetry are true, I have no doubt.
There is no one who can reform my mind.
Black has always been beautiful since the beginning
It is the color of honor and grace,
I am proud to have my Afrocentric face.
That cannot be taken away or replaced.
So do not make any mistake… appreciate
My Black is Beautiful and exceptionally great.
