Special thanks to Hildana Haileyesus for artistic design
highlight my skin.
illuminate my blackness.
let it be known that I serve to complement the gold that kisses my skin,
not the other way around.
God blessed me with this skin
& my blackness shall serve as art.
I am a queen.
the different shades we present to you are a present to you,
all beautifully wrapped in our own hue of brown and black and highlighted with red and yellow undertones.
they all come together to give you who I am.
these colors harmonize to form the perfect sonata of me
but ONLY I can perform it
I’ve been living in this skin for as long as I can remember
so ONLY I can wear it to perfection
I highlight my skin
I illuminate my blackness
I transform me
l am a queen.
