I am the ginger brown of the Egyptian,
the blackness of the Sudan.
I am the beauty to which the birds sing,
I have the supremeness of the mighty lion.
I am the Orchid that adorns the shores of the Nile,
and the brightness of shimmering stars.
I am the gypsy who travels the Sahara,
I am known throughout the lands afar.
I am akin to the American Indian,
the Africans and Europeans the same.
And yet here I am lost inside of my country,
Where no one recognizes my name.
My skin is so pure, a pecan brown,
blessed with beauty by God aplenty.
and yet some try to call me black,
and say I am not akin to any.
Yet I am the golden brown of the desert
and I have the sweetness of the Nile
I am the beauty of Africa’s green jungles and flowers
for I was born natures sweet brown child
