brown boy

my brown boy

how i adore you

you already know that you are brown

you told me that dad and i

are light brown

and you, dark brown

have you noticed yet

that your some people think they are better than you

because of the colour of your skin?

that people in movies and books

don’t look like you?

i don’t want you to ever know this

but i also want you to always know

it’s the world that we live in

and it is changing slowly

my beautiful brown boy

wear your skin with pride

it is your heritage

you are worthy

you are magnificent
