the poetry

melanin.

melanated kings and queens

beautiful in all our forms and shades

be proud, be bold, be unapologetic

we are more than we are given credit for

more than the talents others profit from and utilize for their own benefits

we are bomb ass mothers and fathers, with a love so fierce it knows no bounds

we are who they aspire to be

we are doctors and lawyers, activists and inventors

we are presidents and vice presidents

we are everything we aspire to be and anything we set our minds to

we are artists and entrepreneurs, directors and musicians

we have been put down and belittled and yet here we stand

we are phenomenal

melanated queens and kings

overcoming and raising the bar and breaking bounds

we are strength embodied

exalted in excellence

we are proud, we are bold, we are unapologetic

we are

black history made and in the making
