Somewhere in Brooklyn


Be You

 

Pretty Girl Rock — Keri HilsonΒ 

brown girl

 

smile, brown girl

for all that life offers —

quests and paved ways.

rejoice

in your beauty

marked by

perfect bee-stung lips and

chocolate puddin’ limbs.

you remain tenacious, brown girl

despite the struggle.

 

befriend, brown girl

for life’s too rough to

combat in isolation.

 

stand erect with good intent and

smile, with warmed eyes

 

understand, my friend

for this will take some time.

remain steadfast!

the best follows your steps

you’re just as good,

as smart,

as able.

beware, brown girl

the game is rigged and

because of this

you’ll work the hardest.

 

Live, brown girl

for life’s finite.
