    Getting in Touch With Your Blackness

    Realizing who you are
    the beauty of your ebony skin
    knowing the core of the brightest star
    aluminates deeply from within

    the spiral locks of your wooly hair
    your flesh's lovely skin tone
    the broad lips, exotic and rare
    holds a beauty all it's own

    lost children of royalty
    monarchs without a throne
    reclaim your rightful dignity
    icons of ebony stone

    though your quest for equality
    for now seems unbalanced
    your potential for creativity
    remains forever more unchallenged

    accepting your natural beauty
    is the right place to start
    in fact it is your duty
    and a priority of the heart

    regain your self esteem
    you are originally designed
    re-establish the quest for your dream
    as ordained by the one who's divine

    get in touch with your blackness
    you are children of the light
    knowing yourself the fact is
    ignorance will soon fade from sight

    if, as a people,

    ...we could learn to truly APPRECIATE the wonderful beauty of our RICH heritage--including our many struggles--we wouldn't be so bent on destroying ourselves from within. OUR PASSION drives us. OUR STRENGTH maintains us. and, one day, OUR INTELLIGENCE will deliver us unto OUR TRUE PLACE in the grand scheme of things.

    let the river flow
