The Son of the Sun Poem by Hebert Logerie


I am the Son
Of the Sun
I am neither a fool
Nor a tool
I am a Man
A Black Man
An African
A Caribbean
A Haitian
An American
And my own Man.

I can say loudly
And proudly
That I am all the above
I love, I love, and I love
My people a great deal
My people do not steal
My people want back everything
That was stolen from them
While they were sleeping
Now, they woke up from the dam
From the dungeons
From the prisons
They want everything back
Everything back intact.

I am the Son
Of the Sun
I am neither a fool
Nor a tool
I am a Black Man
I am a Man in black
I am standing proudly on top of the rock
I fear nothing, I fear no man.
