Sun kissed my face
Radiance epitomized
I am dark chocolate
That attracts grace
It’s not the booty
But the soul of gold
Unstoppable is me
I break yet rise
Fears I overcome
Winning life everyday
My breath is courage
Never surrendering
Beauty is skin deep
There’s angst to hue
Identity is in crisis
Honor in danger
Yet I embrace with grit
I am melanin, none less!
