Afro-American pride

Handsome man do you wonder where your beauty
of being  black lies, it’s the strength of power you
display from your eyes.

The eloquent diverse hue of your skin
that you inherit from your kin.

The successful determination of God’s breathe
in your rib cage bones and the defeated struggle
of your lineage that is well known.

Your intellectual mind    
that keeps you out of a complicated bind.

A strategic
techniques that no other ethnic man can critique.

The swagger in your walk,
and the profound words you use when you talk.

The arch of your chin displaying aggressive force to
win with a victorious grin.
A beautiful smile
that shows grace of style.
With respect within you
plus your inner love for another too.

Your enduring faithful urges,
knowing how to pray when fear emerges.

As you embrace a peaceful soul
you’re able to control.

Your humble methods take care of your
responsibility.
When the world’s problems try to rob you of your
tranquility.

You find honorable ways to keep food on the
table, and do what you must when you are not
physically able.

So let me tell you the words that are written as fact
there is no greater beauty than being black.
