My Black Epidermal

by Catherinebutterfly

Many Hues I come in...
From Café Au Lai...
Creamy Caramel...
To sultry dark chocolate...

Oh yes!
Some of us are strong; some of us are sensitive,
I got a unique set of issues for sure.
For someone that the system does not look up to as pure.

Don't need no pigment treatment
Cotton or silk gloves
Full of loving rubs,
Does it for me
Just be gentle,

Got natural protection from the sun,
A misconception the media seem to believe,
I don't need much sunscreen,
Ain't trying to be mean,
My complexion, for other is a dream.
No Hyper-pigmentation,
No dark marks,
No blotches or spots

These I don't got.

These are not my internal or environmental factor,
Such as the sun or trauma folks talk about,

I got No scratches or pimples or keloid
Said to be our genetic tendency.
You'll find none of these on me.

Glory be to God. I give God the praise I got no dark marks
Caused by hyper-reactive
In addition to hydroquinone or prescription remedies.
I am just beautiful as God created me to be.
Color Blind and Free.
