Shades of Me!

by Chereen Fredericks

Brown Sugar, Ebony, Ginger, Mocha, Chocolate, or Cinnamon,
Lets talk about the skin I'm in.

The skin that covers me from head to toe,
 Be it Tawny, Beige, or Yellow.

I'm the "Mahogany mamma," "Foxy Brown," and the "Queen in the Black,"
My BEAUTY DOMINATES and that's a fact.

I'm the color of Copper or is it Butter Pecan,
Maybe it's the Soft Brown of the glistening desert sand.

I'm Very light!
Or dark as night!
Whatever my shade it's All right.

I'm the colors and shades in between
