INSPIRATION FOR THE MIND, HEART, AND SOUL

+ Melanin Skin, Part II

July 29, 2015 | Escaping The Box

In the box you'll confess - to being blessed  with an abundance of melanin.
They'll take that and create your entire being. Slandering your identity.
Trying to mold you in their image. Fixing you into something they can relate to.
They want you to be easily definable, so check all that applies.

None of these boxes can ever hold the truth, which lies upon your lips.
The strength within your heart. The history within your Skin. These boxes
could never hold the beauty you posess. So they may try all they please
but these boxes will never be able to contain the greatness that is a
Melanated Being ...
