Magnificent Black Woman - Poem by Renee Gallman Jones

I am ebony, coca, coffee cream, chocolate and spice. I am a Black Woman a Magnificent Sight.

I create such a stir whatever I do. Attracting stares of astonishment, it’s the distinction of my stride, and the conviction of my voice. I am a Black Woman a Magnificent Choice.

I am Fire, a burning desire to be the best, a single mother achieving ultimate success; Marching to the rhythm of my personal drum. Steadfast as I nurture my children it’s a job that is never entirely done. Oh yeah, I am a Black Woman a Magnificent One.

I am Ice, a craving brilliantly complete curves and angles so smooth and oh so sweet – to experience my love is a rate and special treat. I am a Black Woman a Magnificent Feat.

I am Wind, a breeze tenderly, caressing and embracing each degree of life. In one puff I will cool you on the hottest of nights. Just a draft can motivate, inspire, and enlighten. I am a Black Woman a Magnificent Wife.

I am water, touching every corner of the earth; I am mother but accepted at times as father, teacher and lover. I infiltrate every aspect of life I take on new and different roles each time I give birth. I am a Black Woman The Magnificent Mother Earth.

    a lovely proclamation of pride
    and all the joy of feeling
    alive
    in your own skin
    without worry without sorrow
    feeling strong and poweful
    you stride into the future
    shining and bright
    a fine poem
