Dark and Lovely

I am dark and lovely.

My skin glows with melanin.

It is naturally unique.

 

I am dark and lovely.

My hair is full of natural kinks, coils, curls.

I don't need a relaxer.

 

I am dark and lovely.

I keep my head held high, despite negativity.

You can't and won't EVER hurt me.

I am storong.

I am smart.

I am beautiful.

I am dark and lovely.
