Hello Mom and Dad,
I live for the sacrifices you have made.
The soil you have laid for my growth,
I will continue to tend with care.
Mom you are my sun,
That is where this melanin skin comes from.
You light up my darkest days.
Father, you are the water that replenishes me,
When my life thirsts for survival.
I will continue to grow,
spread my roots into the soil.
I am fresh.
I am a flower.
That will always grow.
