Honestly, your flaws make me wonder... 

if you truly love yourself , 

If you truly adore your design, 


Deep down inside, 

There’s a place you always hide , 

Honestly, your insecurities may be perfection  in god’s eyes , 

Where compassion abides, 

But do you really love yourself? 

Every twist , every curve 

Every single drop of melanin 

Is sweeter than honey , 

Every single curl that coils up 

Every single plump lip 

Is appreciated 

You are loved honestly 


My black is beautiful , 

Your black is beautiful
