I am Ebony ……. A Black Woman, the most Disrespected person in america I am Strong, I am Intelligent, I am Aware I the Black Woman, have Power and Grace I see with my Heart because the eyes are Blinding I see the Ignorance and Injustices like I see Life My Life, one of a Warrior, a Survivor I am a CoCo Goddess A Queen, Uplifting and Divine….. Supreme Just a Black Woman No…. why so simple? A Creation of Complexity and Uphoria An Artwork, A Framework, Yes The Black Woman is Royalty #BlackLivesMatter #BlackGirlsRock The Executive Leadership Council It’s time for the Kings to support the Queens and visa-versa Empowerment for the Conquerors Our flesh like Brown Sugar A Symbol of our Native Homeland Black, a word with such meaning Brown Skin, Diamonds, Priceless .... Melanin for Sale! $365 a piece! Prominent. We are the faces of A special People Our Presence Warm and Inviting The blood within us Thick and Potent Years of Freedom? Oh yes, Freedom of the Mind And Spirit The Body…..??? Suffrage and Struggle are upon it Though, we shall be resurrected Looked down upon and Belittled... Stereotyped and made fun of… But a force to be reckoned with For we are the True Messiahs Like Maya Angelou I will Rise Like Angela Davis I’ll change what I don’t accept And like Lauryn Hill I have passion And I will not falter For I Am Ebony
