Dear African girl
I am sorry that you have been lied to
That you are growing under the rainbow nation
That you were never told about discrimination
Against your body size and colour
That certain places cannot offer you accommodation

You were never told to love yourself for who you truly are
But to impress the society of what they think
That you need to be thin and light
In order to look alike with the picture that has been photoshopped

You were never told that Black is “also” beautiful
Expensive like coal
Taste more like Coke
