Don't ever
Let anyone tell you
We’re not beautiful.
Without a
Shadow of a doubt.
We are one of God's
Most magnificent creations.
With a set of lips full
As the moon
On a clear, star-filled night.
Full nose, lining a smile
That can brighten the world-
And change it.
So many skin stones of brown
From high yellow
To deep purple black.
So beautiful and proud of crown-
Kinky, curly, black, and all browns.
Brothers and sisters in naturals,
Wearing those cornrows,
Braids, and locks with dignity.
Magnificent wonders form the chiseled,
Masculine features
Of the modern-day pharaohs
To the multidimensional curves
Of today's heir apparent of every queen
In African history.
We are overwhelmed with pride
As we look in the mirror,
And when we see other people of color,
We smile..
Because we see ourselves.

Derrick Barnes.

We should first show solidarity with each other. We are Africans. We are black. Our first priority is ourselves.
