Proud of black

I am black and proud! Oh Yes. I will sing it loud all years. Black is my skin calling. Out of black love you will never see me falling. I am a black tattoo inside out. I stay black whether I bleach it out. Because I’m not the melanin you see, But the cranium and genes you don’t see. It’s my color not skin reaction. I have been black since creation, Way before brown was the new black. Before witches rode on hyenas back. Before I got tubed in my father’s loin, I was black even in my Gods' plan. I will stay black at what cost, "Black me back" if you see me lost. Because that’s true love if I love me. Pride is bad but am proud of me.

Energy, I enjoyed reading this tonight. I especially like the lines "Because I’m not the melanin you see, / But the cranium and genes you don’t see." God made you and me the colors he wanted us to be. God gave Noah a rainbow, his eternal love to show. God bless you ~ John
