Truly Brown Beauty
Beautiful brown skin,
Beauty in all it's shades and tints,
And I take not from my darlings with ivory skin,
We're all human kin,
But my brothas and sistas,
Men and women,
You are my first love,
My first passion,
For you I go beyond and above,

I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
