African Queen

Black Is, by Oladimeji Odunsi

The soil holds your roots,

Quietly standing alone,

This delicate beauty you have,

Your voice like a melody,

A kind aura swirls around you,

Something pure and untainted,

In that smile you have,

An African Queen is what you are,

So many there are,

You are unique and simple,

Free and nimble,

Swift and lithe,

Youthful is she not,

Yet the world showed its dark side,

Told her skin is too black,

Bleach and bleach she did,

Told her hair was not beautiful,

Weave and weave it she did,

Her mothers whisper drowned,

By the loud voices in her head,

Sweet child of the earth,

You are beautiful,

You skin was made so,

Your hair grown so,

Cherish it
