This poem is part of a short series of poems desired to make women of color fall in love with their shade of sexy.

      At Cherry Blossom Intimates, we empower women of all skin tones and colors. Sex appeal is not just for the fairer skinned, and black and brown-skinned women of all different shades should feel like a fox in their undergarments. I hope this short series of poems makes you fall in love with your skin color all over again, and shop our collection of products in varying shades of brown nudes.

To my brown skinned beauties,

You are the brown sugar that makes life sweet

The chocolate ice cream on a summers day

The raw earth that grows flowers and trees

And the milk chocolate in a glass

You are the peanuts in the snack jar

And the almonds roasted over the fire

You are the spicy gingerbread made at Christmastime

Or the warm hot chocolate on a winter day

Smooth as Suede

Tan like the leaves of autumn

Sultry like brown mink fur

To my brown skinned beauties,

Who were told their brown skin was too much

Just remember

When it comes to chocolate,

The world can never get enough
