My beautiful brown skin princess
I remember the first time you kicked in me
It will be the moment I cherish forever
You are the best version of what an angel is
Oh my little honey

Your skin is soft as chocolate sponge cake
Your skin shines beautifully in the light like jam
I love your big curly hair, endowed on you by the creator
Those big brown eyes of yours is the most attractive piece made for vision
Your beauty is real with truth and unmatched or unrivaled

You are a special being, handmade by God
You are the best version, made to fit all conditions
You have strength, pace, unbelievable intelligence, resilience…
The list is endless, all packaged into the my wonderful brown skin girl
You are indeed a blessing to me and this generation

You are my adorable and incomparable mahogany
With skin so brown making a lot of people jealous
You are blessed raw like cacao
And you carry a smell of cinnamon and honey

You are the salt of life and my source of light
Oh you are my adorable and incomparable jewel
Your skin is a reminder of everything beautiful this earth will ever know
Evident from the soil farmers feed the world with

Natural brown melanin skin
I know you may be judged not knowing what’s within
People may falsely label you and lack realization
But in truth, you are the most beautiful and radiant girl in the world
My all in one ever blazing brown skin girl

Mix her with sunshine
And she glows within
Even when the sun may not shine, you’ll still always blind them
Your presence in my life cured all emptiness
Sweet like honey, you are my adorable incomparable jewel

The color of your skin does not define who you are as a person
Always show forth your beautiful inside to the world
You do not need validation from anyone to be who you want to be
I believe in you and the quality talents God has built you with
You’re built to last and never crack even in toughest situations

The next few years will so quickly fly,
With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry
As you begin your growth to adolescence, this fact you must know
You’ll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.
You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear

Remember always what you stand for
Never lose your heritage or sell your birthrights
Don’t lose your sleep or your steam
You are covenanted for success my brown skin girl
Go for it, you are built with all it takes to succeed

For all your dreams and goals sit before you very near
Ignore naysayers no matter how loud or close they are to you
The whole world is waiting for you to show forth

With God’s love in your heart and the world by its tail,
You’ll always be my winner, and victory will prevail.
My Beautiful brown daughter
Never lose your fire
