I promise you that I’m down,
and I’ll bring more brothas around,
Not later on, but right now,
and they’ll be ready for a Right Now
Because I see you and my eyes weep.
My eyes see you and I can’t speak
of that brown skin.
You know I love that brown skin
that India.Arie spoke of.
That brown skin
nothing else more above
that brown skin.
A sweet melanin poppin’,
that no one is stoppin’
as life nourishes you to me,
I love my sistas irrevocably.
To caress between your knees
that’s not at all what I mean,
for I have me a Black Queen,
and my mother’s a mature dark seen
as none other than a supreme being.
My goal is to simply show
something that you may never know
because it’s never shown on the shows:
You are a Queen Bee,
you are the Queen Bee.
A purple crown goes ‘round
and ‘round above your storm
of clouds and rain and sunshine
that strains the body again
but this youthful dark brotha is here for you.
I’ve never killed before,
but I’d kill for you
because that’s how strong my will’s
Your beauty is worth more than pure gold,
and I know by looking at that brown that shows,
