Life in 100 Words

A Unique look into life, 100 words at a time.

Extraordinaire (Inspired by Jidenna)

Glorious Melanin that has been kissed by the sun

Hair blowing in the breeze, either natural or bought.

We are here.

Yoga Mats, Dashikis, Ankhs, Snap backs and Big hoop earrings.

Queens sway their hips from side to side, Kings stand tall without a care.

Rare, exotic names, fists up in the air.

We are rare. We're far from ordinary.

They want to know our secrets, they try to imitate us.

They secretly hate us, but intrigued by our Savoir Faire.

They feel that they're superior, but they bow down, we're royalty.

"Nothing about us is  ever ordinaire. We're Extraordinaire."
