    black is beautiful it's taken me the length of someones life for me to figure that out
    for as long as there has been people on this earth black has always been depicted as evil
    black was never a symbol of beauty
    black has always been the color of the night
    the time that the bed bugs bite
    it has never been the color of warmth and affection
    black is depicted as cruel and ugly a hole that sucks you in with no light
    but contrary to belief dark/black is beautiful
    dark is the color of that syrup which sweetens and softens your breakfast
    dark is that coca cola which satifies your thirst and gives bursts of
    sweetness on your tongue
    dark is that rum which so many men fall victim to,
    they become intoxicated and elated when that dark liquor rolls on their tongue and down their throat
    dark is the night sky
    but is it not beautiful?
    with the stars shining so bright and lovely
    dark is that mahogany and that ebony
    which so many have lavishly decorated their homes and floors so many have canes made of that dark wood
    black is a sexy and sleek color it fits everyone just right and places all their physical imperfections out of sight.
    but black can aslo be ugly
    black is that bruise that husband drunk off that black rum has left upon his lover's cheek
    black is what you see when you cut your wrists, hang your neck or blow away your temple because you're so weak
    but black is just as beautiful as that pale pink, that rose or navy blue
    so the next time you want to say that black is ugly and it's through
    just think of that moment when you pour maple syrup on your waffles or pancakes,
    when you satisfy your thirst with that cold coke or diet pepsi when you get a little tipsy off that rum,
    when you enjoy that weet blackberry straight off the vine when you look out your window at night and admire the sky,
    black is everywhere
    know that, i am black and beautiful my skin is the color of ebony of dark chocolate,
    and i am just as sweet so when you take a bite out of a hershey's think of me that's me and all my dark brother's and sister's your tasting and isn't it sweet?
    black is eternal and eternally beautiful
    black
