Black girl, your skin is to die for.
It is purer than pure
The richest chocolate there is.
Who else but you can age like fine wine?
If they ask you why are you so dark,
tell them you were touched by the gods,
tell them your momma gave birth to a Nubian queen.
Black Girl Magic is not just a hashtag.
It is a lifestyle.
And your secret power.
Baby girl, you are the embodiment
of all things Black and girl and magic.
Can’t nobody take that away from you.
you are not a maid.
