I'M Black, I'M Proud
I've got the blacks' blood
That makes me strong like a fired brick.
It doesn't rush like flood
And uniqueness, it speaks.
I've got the blacks' skin
That may candidly cause you to sin.
It shines with much elegance you can't resist
Even if you seem to be a racist.
I'm black and can say that proudly
‘cos we've got hearts starved of fear.
Our sky is never cloudy
‘cos the sun's face is always there.
Oh mother Africa!
So happy to be your replica.
On my bed I lay
With different thoughts crossing my way.
My eyes are wide open still,
After the fruitless search for sleep without pills.
I can see the night passing on,
Unfortunately, none of her allies is around to mourn.
Her African skin is becoming bleached
But the day seemed so pleased.
