To Be A Black Woman

A problem with a need to be adjusted.
Advised to remove her braids
And straighten thy hair.
For it’s the way to look modest.

She is black they say.
They say she should stop arguing.
They say she should stop saying
She is Namibian, because she is black.

Not giving a care in the world.
Society classifies her as a Nigroh.
With her natural nappy curls
For black is beneath every race.

However, what they don’t know is
Being a black woman is a blessing.
For her beauty is infused with melanin
And her skin just like pearls.

A phenomenal black queen
Not afraid to use her voice.
Confident and capable.

So what if she is black?
She is a black Goddess.
Proud and fearless.
