Brown child, so beautiful, so much hope in your eyes.
Brown child, you’re anointed, there’s no need to ever wear a disguise.
Brown child, you’re free, so through the possibilities, allow your mind to wander.
Brown child, because of your strength, you will cause many to wonder.
They will wonder how you smile even though you have shed so many tears.
They will wonder how you can dance after surviving some of life’s tragedies in your short lived years.
They will wonder about the magic that pours from everything associated with you.
They will wonder who gave you permission to stand in your truths.
They will wonder about your beautiful heart, and the lucky person it trusts enough to take a chance and put past pains aside.
They will wonder about your courage despite all of the times that you have failed and tried.
They will wonder how you shine, because clearly, life hasn’t been easy.
Brown child, you’re magical, and this is why you shine so freely.
Brown child, raise your hands towards the sky and keep pushing towards the sun.
Dance beautiful brown child, for the very best of you is yet to come. Patrick
