Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

True Black Beauty

Is my darkness too much for you?
Or should I cake on endless foundation
And look life the rest of the nation
More empty artwork, made to look untrue

Is the roundness of Queens's hips?
Not written in the "Model Look" script
Should I dress myself in baggy clothes?
to cover up parts that your race has opposed

What about the bridge in my nose
A representation that I should become another one of
Fashion's Ho's
Another Do Another Don't
Another I would but I wont

Giving myself a nameless title
In a world where money is vital
Where truth can't be seen by the naked eye
So I hear by imply

That my sleek jawbone
& Unique skin tone
Is just another blessing that the lord cast upon me
So I hear by guarantee

That I am not your average Nation's Ho
