“ All stars deserves to be beautiful “- A Poem
My eyes were adjusted on the sky
My mind was brimming with the memories of my childhood
My thoughts were limited to what people said:
“ A beautiful skin is one that is fair”
“ Try fair and lovely, it will help you”
“ She is ugly because she is dark-skinned”
For a while, my mind had been stuck in a storm of thoughts
It was a depressing convulsion
Everyday sales of whitening creams are increasing
Everyday people are using brightening masks
Everyday they are out for fairness injection
Everyday there sense of self-worth is damaged
And everyday all we can think is this:
“ Fairness is beauty”
But all of this for what?
You think you’ll be accepted by society?
Be more successful?
And be more attractive to people,
When your skin is white as snow?
I don’t want to be different from what I am
I don’t want to try lemon-induced masks
I don’t want to slather goat milk on my face
But I want human beings to be like stars
And to love the glow that they were born with
But this wouldn’t be possible with
Cucumber and Aloe Vera Masks
Or Honey and Yogurt extract
This will be done
If you mix justice, equality , kindness and generosity
Slather this wonderful mixture on your face and your soul
And leave it there for the rest of your life!
