Colour of my skin

Black is beautiful
Light in the winter
Dark in the summer
Finally appreciated
Instead of discriminated
Black is beautiful
Black has different types of shades
And we don’t easily get sunburned
Black is finally going to rise
Instead of falling
Light skin or dark skin
Natural hair or weave
Wigs or low cut
It doesn’t matter

We are beautiful
We are diverse
We are black and proud
Then, now, forever
