    Beautiful
    you are to me
    Black
    you are to them
    Queen
    you are to all

    Bronze skin inspired by God
    You glisten in the day
    And glow at night

    Big features cultured by nature
    You are the picture of perfection
    Painting angelic images
    On our minds

    Majestic mannerisms originated by strength
    You provoke propositions of passion
    While commanding the respect
    That you’ve conscientiously earned

    You are a Beautiful Black Queen
    Why don’t you know it?

    You know that you are Black
    But their definition of beauty
    Distorts what you see

    Your body type is not like theirs
    But(t) you try to lose that thickness
    That is your measure

    You except poor treatment
    Because you don’t realize
    That royalty should be catered to
    Appreciated, cherished, and loved

    You hold the key to the evolution
    Of our cultural revolution

    As mothers
    As grandmothers
    As lovers
    As discoverers

    Of the strong black man
    Born of you
    Clinging to you
    Nurtured by you
    Backed by you
    Encouraging to you
    When we make you proud

    We are nothing without you
    So we need you to know that

    Beautiful
    you are to us
    Black
    You are to them
    Queen
    You are to all

    With self-esteem
    You will
    never let us
    Fall
    Beautiful Black Queens
