    One thing ~
    true that is fact
    Black is where it's at!
    Be the gift that always gives
    Santa Claus ain't going there

    Celebrate black near and far
    hangers-on we embalm
    slave cut the cord...
    wise men serve
    the Lord :bowdown:

    Take a bow original man
    knowledge wisdom
    understands
    if rooted
    is what you know
    adorned under mistletoe

    Because blackface
    ain't never had your back

    in the spring i can't wait to witness again
    my mother in her vegetable garden
    with my granddaughter by her side
    digging in the earth, the sun bright
    being blessed with melanin
    what a privilege it is to be a direct descendant
    of the original family
    God's hand print inside and on our skin
    beautiful in our blackness
    and so proud to be

    ~ sister from another mother
