Afro princess walking
No not walking
Strutting.
Down the street
Newest Jordans
Flaunting.
Her all yellow outfit
Dress flowing
Double take
Lips red.
A red that laughs
And smiles
Without flaw
Flawless.
Feeling herself.
She is
Irreplaceable.


The author's comments:

This poem was inspried by the song Heebiejeebies by Anime feat. Kehlani. I hope people get that people of color are SO BEAUTIFUL. The this idea that European features are the epitome of beauty is trash and we as the next generation should be working to end this foolish bias.
