Melanin

My melanin is not for sale.
It’s not for rent.
It’s non-transferable.

You can’t wake up one day and decide “Ok. This is it. The day I become black.”

My melanin is not for sale.
You can’t copy my rhythm.
You can’t cop my soul.

This walk has been evolving for generations.
This hair is a genetic goldmine.

My melanin is not for sale.
But, if you’re lucky, I might let you bask in it for a while….
