Brown

Eve Series

Hello Wild Ones 💎💎

I hope you are well and doing great things. My prayer is that you are loving yourself right and taking good care of your gorgeous self. I am currently full of bliss, and I couldn’t be happier at the peace that I am experiencing.

Brown

I am as brown as the ground that I walk on

For so long I had learnt to silently loathe this fact

Not enough to want to bleach it

But enough to wish to that God had poured more milk into the earth he used to create me

Enough to consider Becky with Good hair prettier than me

But after kissing the ground so much with my lips

Always standing up only for a black man like me to fetishize my melanin on instagram

But no ready to have babies with my melanin

Always standing up only after being asked ” Is your whole body as dark?”

My relationship with ground has changed

I am as brown as the earth Because I was woven from the earth with purity

No additives no preservatives

Just a little bit more of melanin

Enough to trap the sunrays in my glory

I am better than the Gold they keep searching

Just do your research melanin shots are more expensive than Gold!!

So next time you see me know that I am a walking treasure

    Love this post. Colourism makes me so sad. We are all beautiful exactly as we are and your skin colour should not define who you are or how beautiful you are.
