I am both Dark & Beautiful
“because we are more than the color of our skin”

By Erin Thomas 

We are more than the shades that

color pallets run out of

The dusky wheat ready for harvest

The color and aroma of tea

The hew of mahogany and teak

Powdered sandalwood

The sands of Arabia that sweep across the land

The coffee beans and wheat grains –

that flows from the farmer’s hands

We are nature in its contrast and ray

We are Earth’s shade in its grace

like olive clives set across lands

it is time we embrace every skin and shade.
