Black Beauty

Black beauty stares at me,
I am amazed to see
In her eyes: my liberty.
Her eyes are like mine, but softer,
Despite the scars she proudly bears,
All earned protecting me from fears and snares.

Born in the motherland centuries ago;
She has survived the slave master's blow.

[Hata Bildir]
