Love The Skin You're In..
Who Is It That Said That Nappy Hair Is Bad?
See We've Fallen Prey To European Fads.
As Original People, We Ought To Be glad.
For What We Were Given, Sometime it makes me Mad.
Who Said That It's Bad To Have Dark Skin?
Now Us As Blacks Are Guilty Of It Most, Should Be A Sin.
Now I'm Dark And I'm Proud Of The Skin I'm In.
If Your Not Proud Of Who You Are, No Way You Can Win.
Some May ThinK It's Not Cool To Have Full Lips.
Until By These Full Lips, You Have Been Kissed.
I'm Happy with The Way The Creator Made Me, Pure Bliss.
So With The Negative Comments? Well My Cipher They Miss.
And Last But Not Least, Nothing Wrong With This Wide Nose.
If You Think Anything Different, Im Hear To Tell You Your Mind Is Closed
Some May Think It's Way To Big, Nostril To Wide I Suppose.
But I Was Made Fearfully and Wonderfully, From My Head to My Toes.
