Black is YOU!
Black are WE!
Stand on your feet,
Clap Your hands
Celebrating our Blackness
bringing Light to darkness all over the Land…
ASE! ASE! ASE!
Welcome to a glorious day
With my eyes I see your Black
With my Soul I feel your Black
With my heart
I know you are BLACK!
With my ears, I hear your words that voice
With your tongue
Say it Loud You’re Black and Proud!
My Black loves your Black…
My Black loves my Black…
My Black says let your Black talk Black
My Black says be seen in a crowd, you don’t have to talk loud
My black no longer goes through the back door
My Black knows Black lives Matter
Like Ida B. Wells stood for long time ago…
Let them all stare,
we don’t care
Cause I know where my Black comes from
Melanin in my skin comes from the dark soil of Mother earth
Ignited by the hot flowing rays of the sun!
My Black says wear your hair in twists or a bushy wild Afro…
Child, just let your hair grow long, finding your style even wild…
Even braids or Angular cut with a pard on the side.
pards all over showing artistry of your creativity…
Purple, red and even green hair,
nails to express authenticity and creativity
no fitting in the norms of what societal says
who I should be
Being dehumanized and marginalized is no longer allowed
I take my power in full control
Those days are days of old
By God’s Grace, my truth is base in my ancestry…
my Black has an inner voice
Blackness Gives permission
To put your hands on your hips
red sparks on your luscious lips
Put an ankh around your neck
Show them other folks your lifestyle is based on African principles
Truth now told, Seven of them as a matter of fact
Written over 10,000 years ago by The Greatest of Great, Hermes the Egyptian Sage Philosopher!
My ancestors are guiding me
I quickly bounce back from all life’s calamities
My Black says to me for they are the springboard to higher level of being and living in an external environment of scarcity, suffering, separateness,
doom, gloom and despair…
No sleep walking through my Black Life,
Grandma taught me how to pray
On your knees sometimes child you must be
Asking for the answers and which person place or thing to let go or keep!
Do a deep belly laugh, then stand on your foundation of faith …
Feel the Bliss in your soul,
Contentment, Joyfulness, clarity
As you smile from the inside out…
Mama said, there would be days like this
Unbridled, unefforted Joy like a newborn child
My Black holds reverence for the Holy Spirit like the Kundalini energy wiggling and wobbling from the base of my spine…it’s time brave Bodacious Black Being
Wear your crown, Kings and Queens
Come over here
Your TIME IS NOW
The Blacker the Berry the sweeter the Juice
Black is you!
Black is me!
Black are we!
MY, Oh MY!
