I am a Blackman
And I’m proud of it.
The creator, created me to be special,
He created me to possess strength.
Because of my strength I am loathed
And yet I love them with all their weaknesses.
My strength intimidates them
But their weaknesses fascinate me.
I am the servant and yet I’m the master.
They say that I the colour black
Symbolize darkness, evil and all that is unclean.
But I am the superior colour
For I can absorb all the colours and still remain the same.
I am understood by creation,
For I am the son of the soil.
They may clog, obstruct and shutdown my course, my route.
But I shall succeed.
For I am strong.
They’ve alienated me, enslaved me and abused me;
Yet I survived.
I was the slave, now I’m the master.
I was a black man,
I am a black man
And I will forever & ever
A proud Blackman
