Who told you your brown skin was not beautiful?
Was it someone whose skin is harmed by the life giving Sun?
Who told you your strong tight curls and locs was not beautiful?
Was it someone whose hair does not have the power to stand on it’s own?
Who told you your hips and curves were not beautiful?
Was it someone shaped more like Adam than Eve?
They have lied to you My Queen!
The wisest man to ever live saw you as God’s definition of beauty.
They have lied to you Makeda.
-Your Servant & Your King
#Makeda by Les Nubans
Makeda was queen, beautiful and powerful
Solomon dreamed of her black skin
I sing to revive the memories
To exhume knowledge
That the spiral of time erases
The Queen of Sheba lives in me
Makeda lives in me.
