My Beloved Melanin

Seeing that infectio­­us smile on your face every morning

The smile that constantly unveil nature’s pure hallmark

A smile that causes all emotions at peace

Seeing the unique blend of your values

At your gate this is portrayed with a simple gesture

A culture that glitters like no other

Seeing your possessions in broad day light

Those tangible crystals which pierces through the darkest regions

Causing all humanity to stare in awe

Seeing the depth from which you came from

Seeing the worth of your offsprings today

An unstoppable generation hovering on the world’s stage with the strength of heavy tornados

Ruminating over their declarations in recent times

The everlasting whispers of immense insight from above

Words born out of an honest reflection

In your domain I have discovered an epitome of wisdom

Oh beautiful Melanin

In your presence I have discovered perpetual goodness brewed in your pots

In your house I have witnessed eternal peace from Odomankoma Himself

In the center of your belly my love, is where beauty grows
