    *THE BEAUTY OF A GARDEN LIES IN THE DIVERSITY OF ITS COLORS*

    [J.S]
    ===============================================

    -Spoken and written words, rarely need explanation. In this one sentence poem, one can draw many imaginary pictures and realities. However, in the context and solitude of my conscience I've drawn the beauty of our people in the African Diaspora ['the garden'] as one made up of a multiplicity of shades of the same beautiful color [Black]. We, African people(s) are of jet black, ebony, fudge/cocoa -- to light/bright, orange and red hue.

    Oh yes, we are a beautiful people indeed!!

    A :coffee: :luvv: & :toast: to our African selves.


    PEACE
