Hey Black Girl

Hey black girl,

You know you are a strong black woman

We see you painted in many hues with curls that truly can’t be defined but you tame themYou find the beauty in the elements you once believed were flaws

Your skin glistens and you stand proudly in what many misunderstand 

Hey black girl!

I have a question can you be defined by more than just your skin

You envelope yourself in a color that doesn’t create the culture and you forget your background is a palette of many colors

Your rainbow is just apart of the illustration on the cover of your book

Your story is not a pigment or a wash of races but a journey of self-discovery 

So don’t stop at your skin

Internally keep looking for you
