    Suga filled with creamy
    Moouse and a delicate
    Pinch of brown syrup
    To go on top

    Cinnamon sticks
    And the aroma
    Of Honey Molasses
    Best defines it
    Yet

    We have shaped our thinking
    With eurocentric ideas

    And believe
    The lies that
    Brown isn't beautiful
    Or even pitch black
    And more black than black

    No matter what color you are
    I love em ALL

    Everybody has something
    Good about them
    And unique
    In their own way

    Carmal or maple
    So many different textures and hues,

    These unrealistic views
    By European standards
    Have made self asteem
    Drop

    They're just jealous
    Because we are so various in colors
    And have so much to choose from

    And to all of you
    With that brown suga
    Cinnamon toast crunch flava

    Coco
    Hot chocolate
    In the Aztecs
    Used to be the drink of the
    ~gods~

    So don't be ashamed
    Just because we are blessed
    Thick lips
    Thick thighs
    Thick legs
    Or thick butt

    ~And "some" just aren't~

    Don't critize yourself
    Because of what some ~white~ people said

    Honey Molasses
    And when raised to a certain temperate

    Is delicious and melts in your mouth
    Soothing for the soul
    And relaxing to the mind

    Brown skin
    Golden in the sun

    Every body
    Knows IT'S ALL GOOD
    And just wish that they had some

    It's just like Honey
    ~You a gem babygurl~
    No matter how people teach you
    You betta know it for yourself

    So get that cocoa butter
    And slap it on that skin

    Sometimes act like it's a sin
    Go out and buy you some brand new clothes
    And be proud of the skin your in

    BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!
    However you want to wear your hair
    It's your thang

    Don't let nobody tell you different
    Wear it strait
    Or wear it braided
    Curly of in a fro
    Short or you can wear it long

    And don't be afraid
    To put a hair piece in your hair

    Have fun playing with the idea
    Be as creative as you can

    Brotha
    Lovely as can be
    I put some hot mineral oils
    On your black skin
    My brotha

    I have fun
    My Brotha
    Just tasting your
    Sweet caress

    Black Men
    Stand proud and stand strong!
    Don't be afraid to be yourself
    Don't be afraid at all!

    My brothas and sistahs
    God made you in his image
    Picture that
    If he made a white man in his image
    He can made us in His image
    He made us black

    So does the creation
    Say to the creator
    How come you made me this way
    No so don't question
    God made you just the way
    He intended you to be
    After he made creation
    He made man
    And after he made man
    He said that it was good.

    Honey Molasses
    Rise up
    From your slumber
    And see the light
    God made you so beautifully unique and created
    In his image
    God DON'T MAKE NO MISTAKES
    AND GOD DON'T MAKE NO JUNK!

    Yea!,Gurl,

    Thanks for reading this one,I know it was long but I just got carried away and very inspired because I LUV BROWN SKIN!
    So I just had to shout. You don't mind that do you! A YELLA Sista who just luuv brown skin especially on black people. I ain't no hata but I'm telling you the truth,it's just because people are jealous,that's what da haters won't tell you. I even get envious sometimes. But I have to be proud to be me and (((UNASHAMED))) And especially black people!,We have NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF,AS BEAUTIFUL AS WE ALL ARE!GOD MADE SURE HE TOOK HIS TIME WHEN HE CREATED US! "THEY",JUST DO THAT TO US SO THAT THEY CAN MANIPULATED US! You are FREE if you want to BE FREE! I MADE THE CHOICE TO BE FREE IN MY THOUGHTS IN MY SPIRIT IN MY SOUL. YOU WILL ONLY BELIEVE A LIE IF YOU WANT TO BELIEVE IT AND YOU WILL KEEP LIEING ABOUT YOURSELF IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE THAT LIE!
    Anyways you got me all hyped up sis! I'm vibin of you! lol
    Thanks gurl,you really lifted me up. And you don't have to decrease just because somebody wants to increase, increase in spite of those people and keep on increases. Hope you all like this one fam. It comes strait from my HEART

    k

    Ok,sheryka thanks for peepin this one I really appreciate it!Afridancr,well it just boils down to self exceptance I used to wish that but I'm learning to except myself for who I am and that make me happy there must be a pretty **** good reason why God put me in the skin that I'm in,so I won't complain,Each color each flava has it's very own unique savor,we are all made differently but all uniquely created equally. GQ,my chocolatey brotha man,can I just say MMMMMM!!! with a thousand exclamation marks! Your poem about you being dark as the night really captured me. Something about a nice looking chocolate brotha that just captures me. I don't know what it is! Oh yea it's just because BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL~you are so very welcome,I be feelin yo rythmes too. Love that sweetness about you. Thanks a lot bro.Sunshyne,how many times do I have to tell you,I love readin ya poetry and yo replys,it's that southern hospitality like they say,still lovin that vibe. You are such I really beautiful sistah,I can't help but notice you. I'm feelin this Georgia thang,Sunshyne how do you shine so bright?
