It’s been about us…..
It’s been about the power we wield…..
Afraid of our powers, our strengths, our numbers, our dreams…
Yet we fight no battles….
We are angels yet tended to as demons
Black and proud is all we are
A new revolution is all that will take this world thus far…
All we ask is justice
Our numbers are reduced brutally
We just want peace
“We can’t breathe”
We need the air of Freedom and Life
The right to live and be free
“All Lives Matter”
Yet because of the colour of our skin
We are discriminated…..
We are ill-treated…..
But no! We deserve Equality
Black, white, mixed? We’re all the same
It’s not just about us.
It’s about the world.
Black and proud…..
Our Melanin skin…..
Much the same as graphite and diamond
Never trading who we are
For anything in this world
We deserve to be treated with Love
Because Black is beautiful
And Black Lives Matter too
Black and proud is who we are.
