Melanin Girl, your melanin is POPPIN’ You woke up like that You’re flawless Yo’ skin is mixed with caramel and chocolate As dark as night Or as light as honey Yo’ hair is so big and curly You turn heads when you come into a room Everyone becomes blinded by your glory You’re feeling yourself… Feeling your melanin You are magical You walk with an air of confidence One that no one can deny Erykah, Lauryn, Sade Nicki, Rihanna, Beyoncé Taught us self-respect Taught us never to settle for less Taught us to love ourselves To love our melanin

Melanin can be found in all forms of life. Only Albinos do not have melanin. By the way I am with you. I love caramel and chocolate too. Cheers
