“BEAUTIFUL TO BE BLACK”

“It’s beautiful to be black.”
It is the color of strength and pride.
I will say it out loud. I don’t have to hide.

I love me, and the color that I represent.
Look at me, there is nothing like it.
What you see is not an illusion.
It’s a gift from GOD, don’t ever confuse it.

“It’s beautiful to be black.”
It is the color of fame and envy.
If I wasn’t black, I wouldn’t be me.

Black is the color of power and authority.
It is so outstanding, thank you LORD for blessing me.
I’ll shout it to the world, I’m proud of what I am.
Those who are in vain will never understand.

“It’s beautiful to be black”
It is the color of confidence and style.
I have been blessed, by my ancestor from the Nile.

I am scenic from the inside out.
These verses are true, I don’t have any doubt.
There is no one who can change my mind.
Black has been beautiful since the begging of time.

“It’s beautiful to be black.”
It is the color of honor and grace.
This is one thing that cannot be taken away.

    This poem is really so beautiful to define the emotions of black people… god created this universe with diverse life… like diversity on our planet… god created different animal’s with diff. body and diff. Colour same he created men women with diff. Colour… so white… wheatish.. grey is good colour and black is bad it’s totally wrong definition of creation.. all colours are good.. all people are good… we choose ppl by their deed not by thier look… it will take time to change the perception of people… but we have to promote the black is beautiful campaign… and black ppl must believe that they r as gifted as other ppl of this planet…. so black people firstly love themself… world will also them…
