I like it black and strong

Nefertari Amenities of the African lands Indigenous black beautiful roses Of the African soil Dark and strong In a black alluring archaic vogue an amara in black woman Sisters of samandzie Balleting in a black dulcet rhythm Of the African ancient song With an Idrissa desta The power of Thee Black Spiritus mundi Brown eyes, Thick bones Curly kinky afros Dark is deep and strong An authentic unique beauty of nature Glows and Flourishing From deep within I like it black and strong

Nefertari is an ancient Egyptian word meaning "Most beautiful" Idrissa is the name from Senegal meaning "Immortal" Desta is from the Amharic language of Ethiopia and it means “joy or happiness.” Amara is from Nigeria and it means “elegance or grace”. Samandzie means "Spiritual world" 'Spiritus Mundi' was a term used by (W.B. Yeats) on his poem "The second coming"to describe the collective of the World/universe spirit Please don't take this poem offensive if you are not an African or not with Brown skin, I'm not being racist or critical to other ethnic groups... I wrote this piece for my sisters who sometimes find themselves feeling uncomfortable with their physical appearance/ natural looks, the appearance doesn't really matters, what matters is what is inside you
