MY BROWN SKIN.

Brown Skin, Skin deep.

The sun kissing my skin,naturally Sun-tanned.

Ebony black queen. Comfortable in my Skin.

No need to be you

Oh! what’s the use

I am comfortable in mine

Just so you know I don’t lie.

The scars marks my stars

History lies on my skin,

You see the scars on my skin

Are signs of where I have been.

The scars marks my stars

My skin’s history equals my great victory

My beautiful brown skin

The true essence of my being.

    Deep touch. Lovely tanned skin that speaks of warmth, that tells a history of yesterday and beautiful tomorrow’s.

    Being and African American and loving the melenin in my skin this piece really spoke to me. You capture the essence of the sweetness of being brown in a world that at times does not always appreciate diversity. Great work. I know this is a late comment but I am barely out of my infancy as a blogger.
