Dear Brown Girl


Dear Brown Girl

Love the way you move

Through the world even when it’s cruel

Love the fro, the way you glow

Love how you’re tangled, diverse and pulled through

From the various queens before you who paved the way for you

You give everything you are

Don’t stop, you’re going far

Dark skin, lovely kinks intertwined with your curls

This is your world

Created by you

Don’t be afraid

To make it true to you.
