I Am King
I am a handsome black man I know where my of beauty of being black lies it’s in the strength of of power I display from my eyes the eloquent diverse hue of mu skin
that I inherit from my kin.
The successful determination of God’s breathe
in my rib cage bones and the defeated struggle
of my lineage that is well known.
My intellectual mind
that keeps me out of a complicated bind.
techniques that no other ethnic man can critique.
The swagger in my walk,
and the profound words I use when I talk.
The arch of my chin displaying aggressive force to
win with a victorious grin For 400 hundred years the black man has been crying
with inner tears striped from my manly dignity and
identity my self love has been ripped.
I witnesses over again my son’s body being lynched
in the enemy’s clench and my daughter suffering great
pain from being raped and spiritually slain.
The black man harbors a lot of anguish that tugs on his
tarnished soul but my divine love fights to keep
Me whole. My brute strength of an ox kept me standing strong carrying such a heavy burden on my shoulders waiting for my freedom to come along I endured years of rejection and humiliation just because of my colored face no other race can withstand what I have gone through the pain lies deep inside next to where my injustice resides do you understand the magnitude and power of you being black as a black man I have to realize my destiny creating a story for another great legacy a strong black man can never be replaced dear black men you are my fellow brothers I am sorry the world tried to convince us that we are worthless and inferior we built this country with are hard working hands and whips on our backs teach our young kings his voice is the melody of an unheard song a strong black man is never insecure of another black man’s achievements but rather proud and rejoiced that his fellow brother is being celebrated and adored dear black men let the majestic power shine through your eyes they have tried to keep us down for so long but now it’s time we raise and take back what’s rightfully ours and sit atop the throne behind every strong black man is a strong black woman for she is queen and I am King ....
