Black Pearl - Poem by Jennifer J. Slater

Dear is your beauty and priceless you are,
as every black boy and girl who must stand alone
in seas filled with pearls of different sizes and shapes,
but none, none to match their shade.
Black Pearl, you are forced to stand alone,
in classrooms where you have no friend,
on playgrounds where you sit and wish for a friend,
someone clothed in natural ebony, just like you.
Black Pearl, your beauty is radiant, your strength is awesome.
So keep on standing. Stand Tall.
You are Black Pearl.
