Brown skin

You know I love your

Brown skin dipped In melanin ,scars carved from generations of slithering ,yet grins grace faces gently as hope resides within.

And now

It can begin..freedom rang from North Star to Quaker and baby girls used visions to guide men and women to freedom

Oh freedom

Oh joy as the underground gave proof to sunlight on the other side as northern lights twinkled

And now

Inside every skin resides a soul who knows the pride of being beat down

And then

To rise .

I rise

Be still

I rise.
