Phenomental Black Man - Poem by Renee Gallman Jones
Although inflicted with many injustices I still rise; upon my broad powerful shoulders I carry my family, aspirations and my pride. I am a warrior blazing the trails of success. The leader of family, friends, and tribe I once was crowned with jewels, land and pride. Society has tried to strip me of my manhood, my dignity, my religion and pride; offered to me inaccurate convictions and images, but yet my roots are planted firmly, my courage still strong and my head held high. I am a Phenomenal Black man and still I rise.
The hunter yet the hunted still never truly trapped, it’s the swiftness in my pace, the wisdom in my intellect that keeps me unafraid of the obstacles, affliction and contempt. My culture dictates my legacy I am father, I am husband; the provider, the educator and the comforter. It is through my story telling and my example that my children will know that I am Phenomenal Black Man and still I rise.
Phenomenal Black Man powerful and wise. For I am the strength the leader, the hope and the future. I am the symbol of all.
I am a Phenomenal Black Man, and still I rise.
Phenomenal Black Man That’s Me!
