Sweet Chocolate Berry - Poem by Joi Alexander
I am the sweetest hue of beauty,
The darkest shade of light.
Skin that was kissed by the sun in daytime
glistens underneath the moonlight.
I am the ripest, honeyed blackberry,
dripping early morning dew.
With the nectar passed down in ancestry
Pumping entirely and eternally through.
Chocolate, cocoa, mahogany brown baby
Raised up where ridicule and insecurities meet
Grown into proud and confident that surely don't give a damn
I talk when I walk, swinging my hips to a heartbeat.
That Berry black attitude lives in my soul,
Of that I'm sure you will agree
Satisfaction is my name, Im alive in this skin!
I heard you looking for me?
