In this poem , ¨ i love my skin¨ by samyah i learn that she has accepted the way her skin tone is and how much she thinks and feels that her skin tone is pretty enough and it fit her well.Even through some of her struggles on being judged or being threatened by other she has notice that get skin tone is not worth someone’s thoughts or how they feel about her skin tone but how much her skin tone holds so much strength.This has showed that she such strong person and i really powerful person different skin tone. Some examples, her are some words she said , ¨I love my skin…. My skin makes and breaks me but I love how it glams in the sun¨ or ¨ my skin being targeted  by police or just walking down the street but I know my skin tougher than nails.¨ this is such a beautiful thing to say about herself.

i think and feel that people with a dark skin show know how much beauty their skin tone has and how people words should not affect them at all and should totally accept their skin tone and how much power the have and make sure they know how much they have people admiring the wonderful skin tone .

Do you think people with different skin tone should accept their skin tone ?
