    African Black Soap
    faintly sweet licorice smell
    delicately milled
    lathers so well
    Earthy brown hues
    in subtle swirls
    cleansing skin
    as precious as pearls
    African Black Soap
    blended in tropical rain
    shea butter, honey
    and herbs to sustain
    Let this natural cleanser
    purge our bodies of all impurity
    coming under the guise of
    fear, injustice, and insecurity
    Wash away the shame
    of being Black
    And replace it with the
    pride that we often lack
    Emerging, Kings and Queens
    filled with honor and hope
    cleanse my spirit
    African Black Soap
