Our Life

My beautiful black.

I do not have blue or hazel eyes
Mine are dark; they are black!
I do not have light skin
Its dark yet soft
No, I don’t have straight silky hair
Its thick, kinky and beautiful
No, I am not vulnerable or angry
I am me; only black!
I don’t need a touch up to be me
Cover not my beautiful black!
No I don’t need straight hair;
Burn not my scalp
I love my dark
I love my kinky
I love me
Heritage of my black
My beautiful black.

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ’ž. I love my skin and also love my groom’s skin and then the mix of our children. It’s all beautiful as created by God. ๐Ÿ’

    1. Actually that has been something I have had to wrap my mind around in the past few years. I really try not to get caught up in things that hurt my heart. I choose to forgive daily ๐Ÿ’ž

  1. Your writing is comforting. Thank you for liking And He Restoreth My Soul Project. I thought I would visit to see what you do. I’m glad I did.

  2. That was beautiful! Itโ€™s always nice to see when a black girl can truly embrace who she is. Not feel pressured to fit societal norms.
