Those who tried to claim me Were unable to tame me They stopped to blame me Then started to maim me Ever caught the wind, have you?
I care not for our defaults I care not for societal norms I wouldn't dabble in white lies But take the bull by its horns Did I break your rules, too?
A free soul cannot be caged so easily They say I'm alone, but I know there are more of me Our love of freedom unites us Soul siblings from green Mother Earth They are too set in their own ways To observe the world as I do They desire a mirror, and me a window
Non conforming rebels unite! Apologies for the rhyming pattern, it became a free for all :(
I see you… With eyes that belie my weakness. And a heart in humble meekness. I see you, and your uniqueness.
I feel you… With an embrace to enmesh us. Sustained passion to refresh us. I feel you, and why you’re precious.
I perceive you… Your awesome aura and mystique. The answer to the love I seek. Perceive you, precious and unique.
You… Of this unique revelation. Preciousness of your creation. To perceive precious and unique— That defines appreciation.
In "God In Search Of Man," Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel writes, "Appreciation is not the same as reflection. It is an attitude of the whole person. It is one's being drawn to the preciousness of an object or a situation. To sense the preciousness of being able to listen to an imperative of God; to be perceptive of the unique worth of doing a mitzvah, is the beginning of higher kavanah." The definition of "appreciation" as perceiving the unique preciousness of something stuck with me ever since I first read that passage.

Your beautiful body is a work of art Dipped in black gold and coated with brown sugar You define an indestructible uniqueness Your black skin is a badge of superiority Black is magical and above elegant Black complexion is the new religion.
She was adorable in her coffee tinted skin Her beauty as rare as the clustering of dragonflies Amazing to look upon like the gathering of butterflies Through her eyes stars felt closer than ever Her lips was as beautiful as the opening of petals
My heart paused when our eyes came in contact I felt like i have seen the queen of all that is beautiful The envy of every woman there is to be She was thin tall and adorned in elegance Endowed with charisma of an Ethiopian princess
Her smile was first born Her beauty always suffocated the crowd All i could see was the wonder of her skin I have fallen under the spell of this black queen She was a fragile treasure, the elixir of beauty
She sparkled like she was kissed by the morning sun She was never satisfied with her perfection Trying to fix what GOD has personally certified Denting you to wear a skin that isn’t yours Like sharp sand i watched her beauty sink rapidly
She was deep rooted in self-doubt of her skin pigment Not knowing the magnificence of her existence She never knew she was a gush of glamour Glorious to behold and graced with melanin Gradually she became high on inferiority complex She became lost in a world she was created to own
Your beautiful brown body is a work of art Dipped in black gold and coated with brown sugar You define an indestructible uniqueness Your black skin is a badge of superiority Black is magical and above comparison Black complexion is the new religion .
