You Are Beautiful
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
You are beautiful,
Your skin is not too dark for you to feel meaningful.
They washed our brains with that light skin sheet
But the truth is, that ain’t it.
You are Beautiful, Powerful.
No man on earth should ever have to complain,
That He used so much creativity to paint us and
I don’t ever want to hear that phrase
« You’re beautiful for a dark skinned girl,»
coming from any of my brothers.
« You’re beautiful for a black girl. »
Who are you, sir
To put such diminishment on my sisters?
Because you don’t hold the standards.
We are beautiful,
Made by the Creator of the stars.
