And there’s nothing that we lack.
He knew what he was doing,
And he will not take it back.
When they whine with such remorse?
About being blessed with hair like wool,
That’s curly and that’s coarse.
When they decide it must be changed.
And they bleach their hair to blonde,
So that no Black will remain.
When they’re trying to be white.
Not knowing “Black is beautiful”,
They think that “white is right”.
Their children act and lack?
When they don’t teach them the honor,
And the pride in being Black.
With “pride goeth before the fall”.
When we had pride, we had kingdoms,
When we lost pride, we lost them all.
We wouldn’t have been Black at birth.
And if Black was not the most beautiful thing,
God wouldn’t have made it first.
Is as bright as the brightest sun.
But the heavens, the home where God resides,
Is a Black and beautiful one.
That being Black is hard.
We must think of ourselves in a “poker game”,
And the devil holds our cards.
And now we must win them back.
By showing the devil how proud we are,
That God has made us Black.
Our education, clothes and style.
And reflect on the “slaves” we have become,
But only for a while.
Into something that is fake.
We must remember that God made us Black,
And God don’t make mistakes.
