+ Melanin Skin, Part I
A LETTER TO MELANIN
there is something about you, that screams beauty. you are made of stories that only you can understand. this is an ode to the most exquisite beings in the world. this is for all of you who have been mistreated for the richness of your skin, for the way your hair frames the side of your face, for the depth of light that shines boldly within the crevices of your eyes, for the curves that most try to imitate but cannot portray. for the way your skin glistens as the sun makes your body it's new home. this is for you, the way you love so intensively. for your love is as sweet as honey and potent all at once. for your strength embodies all things that are immaculate yet hard to fathom. for your words which speak of truth mixed with a bit of edge. for all of the connotations that have made it's way to your ears. for all of the hurt and pain, that caved the rib cages of your heart. for all of the amazing bodies that you have touched. for all of the souls that have been blessed by your presence. melanin, you are loved beyond words can express. you are more than appreciated, beyond recognition.
— one of your kind.
