From the night in her skin to kink of her hair
The sun in her smile to the stars in those eyes
I know that Melanin is beautiful
The beauty that glows through her
blood like magic
Her melanin drips like honey
Can you imagine a voice so sweet you could taste the diabetes
Can you imagine how the tears of this woman will make rivers
You will find the souls of her sons floating in
Dreams of haunting, of prey, of white of guns of nose,
nose is tight like she is tight like a nose
This kind of melanin
This kind of woman
Makes the worst days worth living for
Makes trying to live some of the worst days
But this type of melanin is strong
Even when the pavement of her heart starts to crack under oppression
She will still bleed love, hope, smiles, and laughter
she will bleed the bloodshed of her father’s death
She will ache the pain of the weight her mother carried on her black
Because of this I know that melanin is beautiful
Is pain, is sorrow, is love, is her
She is love
She is what made melanin so damn beautiful.

Today, one of the most recognized advantages of having Melanin is the “protection it offers from the UV rays from our Sun”. Well of course that is not my preferred phrase… why? Well, saying that you need protection from anything or anyone advocates subliminal implications that you are up against an oppressive attacker. Our Sun is not evil but is only responsible for offering life to all that are natural and even artificial. Therefore Melanin gives us the ability to simulate the wonderful life frequencies from our beautiful Sun of its and our creator. Like plants, people with high levels of Melanin also go through photosynthesis. Eating natural fruits and vegetable is a secondary way to getting the minerals from our Sun. Our body can directly feed on the minerals from our Sun but we will first need to bring our body back to a healthy state along with our environment.
All natural entities in existence have an element that dictates their outcome; that controls their means of manifestation. This element is dominant in all that is natural and it is called Melanin. In humans Melanin is primarily produced by the pineal organ; which exists in the center of our brain. In ancient cultures such as the Egyptian’s, it is symbolized as a snake on their headdress. In India it has become customary to wear a dot on their forehead to symbolize the importance of the pineal. Unfortunately most of them are not aware of the scientific and spiritual essence of such gesture.
