No love…

for the…

chocolate girls… 🍫

you say… 😳

8 out of 10… 🙅🏾

of us…

aren't...

cute…

you say… 😳

Makeup… 💄

doesn't show up...

well…

on us…

you say… 😳

You are...

'dark & pretty'... 😍

but…

you…

are…

the exception…

to the…

rule...

you say… 😳

Are there…🕵🏾

any...

light-skinned…

folks...

in my…

family?…

you ask… 😳

El darko…

is what…

you say… 😳

when…

referring…

to me… 🤷🏾

Nah...

brother...

you are...

simply…

talkin'... 🗣

about…

your soul… 🖤

Now…

Please…Please…Please...

find…

a way…🏞

to turn…

on…

the...

lights...🌟

upstairs...

b'cuz...

deep down...

you know...

that…

BEAUTY...

comes in…

all shades... 💐

races... 👩👩🏾👩🏿👩🏻👩🏼

& exteriors…🐢

For...

the...

supremely-competent...

brilliant & magnificent… 💗

Divine Creator…

never made…

anyone …

by mistake… ✊🏾

Though…

I fear… 😱

that you...

are…

more…

shallow…😮

than…

a...

kiddie pool…

What...

you…🦉

should have...

been...

worried about...

was how well…

I treated…

others... 🤝🏾

But,

you failed…

the grand spiritual…

test...💎

with no chance…

for a redo…

And...

No party invitation...

will ever...

be...

extended…

to you…🤡

and others…

that think like you…

Now…

please...

step off… 👟

and...

go &...

play...

in the…

shallow water...

with the other

peeps…

that are…

afflicted...

with your…

same 'toddler' 👲🏿mindset…

As for me...

I will be…

on the beach… 🏖

getting…

an even deeper tan… 🌞

& enhancing…

the chocolate shell... 🍫

that I...

was given…

by…

my Maker...

as a precious...

gift... 🎁

to add...

to…

the cultural...

rainbow… 🌈

on the day…

that I was born… 👶🏽

Given your ugly…

track record… 👣

what you…

had to say...

never really mattered... anyway… 👎🏾

babe...
