My Blackness - Poem by Anita Khelawan

Yes I am black and dats a fact.
To some its just a colour,
I look at it as the history of my ancestor.
As my friend said 'black is about spirit and soul'
Hell yeah its d most precious thing in d world.
So my definition of black...........
I am loving my blackness,
I know I am a 'Nubian Empress'.
So divine, wonderful and kind,
Dis is how I am goin to be for a lifetime.
Apart of dis black dynasty......
LOVING MA SKIN AND EVERY PART OF ME! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Facing the fact without denying. i love the last sentence of determination. l love every part o f my body and i am determined to become great. be determined and you will become great. love yourself as you are and the whole world will love you. God wants you to love yourself because he is the creator and your father who loves you as u are. God bless you dear poetess. tony (Report) Reply
