She is a black woman,
She is African ,
She is Nigerian .
Though her skin is like that of the rising Sun,
It’s colour like that of a ripe paw-paw.
“She is a Mammy water” some people say,
“She must have bleached” some others say,
“It’s because she’s fair that’s why she’s fine” they conclude.
Those are the words she hears everyday.
She’s used to them,
It comes with the complexion .
But that doesn’t change who she is.
She’s all natural,
She’s a good woman,
She’s a light skinned beauty .
