I am Ebony
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
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!
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
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
