January 10th, 2022 – Chocolate

Chocolate colored skin
Beautiful and proud

Moulded to beautiful bones
Spine rigid with pride

Why sing the praise of ivory
When the ebony is just as charming

I find it funny when referred to
As a person of color by others

Because no one is without color
We all just different shades of brown

Respect all heritage, all birthrights
See goodness in all, regardless of their skin color

Prompt word given by Ritu; Chocolate
