    I am a BLACK woman
    And I've got my eyes set on the prize
    Now, I'm about to break it down
    And what I'm saying ain't no lies.

    I wasn't born into slavery
    But I know what it's like to bound
    Heavy burdened and head hung low
    Wishing the hands of time could be rewound.

    I am a BLACK woman
    Heart filled with strength and pride
    I am a living witness to that ol' hymn
    "I ain't no ways ti'ed."

    I may not push a Lexus
    Or wear a Rolex on my wrist
    But I still have everything I need
    And I'm really diggin' my blackness.

    I came into this world BLACK
    I plan on leaving out the same
    Please believe me when I tell you
    This really ain't no game.

    To be a BLACK woman is one thing
    To be a strong BLACK woman is another
    I prove my strength in many ways
    One, by standing by my BLACK brother.BLACK
