Melanin

You are not just your melanin

You are somebody

Beauty in the vast seas

Overcoming obstacles

Courage and strength 

Not just melanin

You are more than that

Hearts beat the same

Blood as bold

Never be ashamed

To own your melanin

Embrace that part of you

Show the world you are more

More than the melanin you wear

Honor your people

With love and fierceness

You are needed too

You have a purpose

Kiss your children goodnight

Tell them they are

More than their melanin
