Creator why was I not born white?
Why is my skin color black?
I kept asking myself everyday because
I did not understand the artistry and efficacy of the color black
Or what it meant to be black.
Every time I walked past a flower,
I asked myself why there was none black?
Till it sprang to my mind that without the soil or fertilizer
A seed cannot grow into a tree or plant that produces flower
And the soil is color black
This meant to me that it was more than the end result
It was about what produced the flower and its power
My skin color black is not just a color but a nature of blessing
My skin color alone is not black because I am black.
