    I am the night sky which envelopes the earth
    Under my wings reside the planets moons and stars
    My imaginations brings about changes
    My words brings about revolution
    Without me there can be no day
    I am asset though they deem me a liablility
    They fear me not for what I am, but for what I shall become
    They call me ******, negro, tarbaby, and spook
    But don’t stop there for I am much more
    I am beautiful, I am royalty, I am poetry
    Created in the Master’s image and in his likeness
    The greatest name that I could ever be called is
    Simply Black.

    Bishop...oh Bishop

    You shone your light deeply into my soul with this poem. This is the strength of character that EVERY black man should posses.


    I am beautiful, I am royalty, I am poetry

    You are beautiful
    I behold your royalty
    A poem in my night.


    Thank you Bishop.

    Much respect...Joyce
