    Can I put my afro on
    Raise my fist in the air
    Run my afro pic
    Through
    My nappy course hair
    Do I dare
    Hold my head up high
    Stride by
    With all my
    Black hip swish
    Catching a Black eye
    Ooooooooooooooh
    Guuuuuuuurl
    Got Dayyyyyum!
    Brotherman
    Grabbing his manly pride
    My natural
    Cherry colored lips
    Thick caramel
    Definitely chocolate
    Still frame photo
    *click*
    Knows me
    As a masterpiece
    Please know me
    As a Bbbbbbbbbbad Mutha-
    Sista
    Lover
    Nothing less
    Or other


    Than Queen
    Can I cornrow Black
    My Queen's cap
    That keeps me
    Crowned in glory
    His story
    Can't be called the truth
    How the uncouth negate The most beautiful ways
    Some say
    The ancestors fly high Around the son
    Turning him into the Blackest knight
    While I smile
    Holding my womb tight
    Never know
    When a brotha shows
    He's ready to be a King
    So
    I prepare to bring my gifts
    Spritedness
    Naturalist
    Swiftly elocuting
    *smack*
    An ear kiss
    Got to speak to the soul
    Where I am told
    Black love will leave
    Sighs in your chest
    Nothing left to be there
    But love
    Nothing else matters...
    Can I be as strong
    As the Black bone
    That got me misconstrued
    Include me as being wise
    Wisdom more profound
    Besides, as much as I try
    I ain't never gonna be
    Strong enough to forget
    How weak I am for intimates
    My feminist
    Can do it for her dayum self
    Underneath
    Truth being said
    Ain't nothing dred
    About a loc'ed head
    Just a locked mind
    That hasn't learned to pic
    The key
    Is indeed inside your soul
    My ancestors
    Whispered in my ear
    Told me some folks
    Don't even know
    How beautiful it is to be
    Black
    In fact the undone
    Want to wash off
    The Black face
    Having no trace
    When and where
    We Black Faces got lost
    No need
    Finding something
    You ain't looking for
    Don't want to be found
    Not loving yourself
    As I put my afro on
    Run my afro pic
    Through my
    Nappy course hair
    Hold my head up high
    Catching the eye
    Of Black faces by choice
    Not by circumstance
    I Raise my fist in the air
    Open my third eye
    I stare
    Into the abyss of darkness
    Black faces
    Traces of
    fathers
    mothers
    sistas
    brothers
    lovers
    friends
    Continue to be strong
    Ain't nothing wrong
    With keeping your
    Black face on
    Be powerful People
    Black faces that feel
    How real it is to know
    Your Black ***
    Struggling to stride
    Your Black face
    Smiling with pride
    Eye by eye can’t deny
    How Beautiful it is
    To be Black
    Power to the People!
    POWER
    TO THE PEOPLE!
    POWER
    TO A
    BLACK
    FACE
    PEOPLE
    Be powerful
    People that feel
    How real it is to be
    Black
    Faced
    People
    Keep keeping on your Black face…

    Now this is truly the epitome of a peace piece.

    My strong Nubian Queen, know that I keep my black fist raised high & my black face I never hide.

    Reading this piece will make my black face glow with a radiance that will make them shy away.

    Thank U, my sister, this was really inspiring.

    Soulfelt peace.
