A Little More Sun

by Lawanda Felton


A little more Sun for the dark skinned sister, please?

It gives me the power to live!


When I lay in the clay,

that was used to mold me,

Shine down into that dirt

and watch life

spring from my body

still.


A little more Sun for the dark skinned sister, please?

It's reviving to my mind.


Dried up all that white water

that was used

to wash away my pride,

and every drop,

of every river,

I ever cried.


A little more Sun for the dark skinned sister, Please!?!

It strengthens my body.


Warm rays penetrate my skin

and provide energy,

allowing my beauty

to grow from within.


A little more Sun for the dark skinned sister, Please!?!

It's nurturing to my soul!


"The darker the berry,

the sweeter the juice,"

Is what I've

always been told.


Thank You Heavenly Father,

for Shining Your Light,

on me.
