MY BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL
My black is beautiful. My black is strong.
My black protects me from the sun all day long.
I don't wrinkle, I don't crack. I am that way because I am black.
I have endured the worst that they've unleashed on me.
I turn the other cheek because I know I am free.
I don't need to fight, I don't need to worry because my black is beautiful it gives me courage.
Don't put me down. Don't get me wrong. My black will shield me from all of your wrong.
I see you now. I see you today. My black has great purpose and I am on my way.
I will show you who I am. I promise I will.
I will show you every day the strength of my will.
My black is beautiful I know that is true.
No need to cosign that declaration of my will.
My black is beautiful. My black is strong. My black is beautiful my black is strong.
