my blackness is not dirty

my blackness is not dirty

my blackness is not dirty, 

she is not a flaw, 

or an imperfection. 

 

my blackness is not wrong, 

she is not dangerous

or negative. 

 

my blackness is beautiful, 

she is full of life

and perfection. 

 

so do not ever wash away

my blackness. 

my beauty. 

my life.
