Hello All! So I’m sitting here writing. I just wrote this poem to a beat in my head. You won’t hear the beat, but just think of a fly uptempo beat in your head & follow along. I also had fun with it and recorded it on video with a beat I thought matched, let’s say this is more like spoken word. Read it to your own tempo, then watch the video below! Did you get the tempo right? Let me know! The name of this one is, “Melanate Celebrate”, enjoy!
We melanate So let's celebrate I don't really have no time to hate Forget the cake I got the ingredients I bake it how I want, no need for obedience 1 part love several parts marriage Whip it up and ice it with horse & carriage We got us a community built on families Dark skinned, light skinned, and red like cherries Black love, black life, black man, black wife Black wealth, black health, legacy & love of self Black hair, black styles, confidence & black smiles Black lives mattering, black inventions, black styles Whew! I done said a lot Black is my kettle, & so is my pot I’m calling it black like I said it was Everything is melanated & it's all good.©
