    like the full span of an eagles wings
    while bassing in the wonders of the miraculous sun
    I embrace my blackness
    like the lone wolf
    paying attributes to the moon
    I embrace my blackness
    Like the almighty stallion
    galloping through the meadows
    with the wind at it's sides
    I embrace my blackness
    No one has to tell me to love me
    no one has a right to steal my heritage
    across the dessert sands my feet have burned
    my mouth parched from dryness
    and still I embrace my blackness
    the beat of my beginings echoes in my soul
    while singing in my ear my blackness shall
    forever be
    So I hold my head high
    with my shoulders positioned back
    as my ancestors dance around me
    as I embrace my blackness
    my heart is fed
    my spirit have kissed my guardians
    and their protection have engulfed
    my being
    AS I EMBRACE MY BLACKNESS
    HAVE YOU EMBRACED YOURS?

    in the 70's I fought for my Blackness even after it was no longer fashionable to do so. Now the time is coming again the momentum is slo but sho. Your vibe lets me know that there is a bubbling underneath the surface.tUFFY :wink:

    This was not only knee-deep...my sister it was ...skin-deep indeed. It reached deep in my soul and wakened all ancestors before us. They died for us, and we must live for them :wink: ...and need I say...you put all the blackness...back in "BLACK"
