Flexin’ Our Complexion


Some would say that we possess super powers

A “Black Magic” of some kind

From the kinks of our hair to the soles of our feet

We exhibit versatility

Ranging from the deepest and richest of shades

We form an amalgam

Of heavy nightfalls, burnt ambers, buttery toffees,

silk cocoa, singed brûlée, and glazed mahoganies

Crowned by the royal coils of our ancestral roots

Our tresses stretch

towards the heavens above

And sit something like a diadem

Encrusted with jewels

Our names

Signify the innovation and power that exists within us

WE are creativity

and originality in their purest form. ⠀
