Buried within your soul young man lives the destiny of kings
Awaiting the chance to take hold and help you sprout golden wings
Young woman from birth you were adorned with a golden crown
Granted by God, a priceless symbol worth more than a worldly gown
Remember Father Destiny makes no mistakes!
That’s why my Ebony child, your successes make the world QUAKE!
Your very breath in this world is a proclamation of victory
your every decision is an opportunity to sculpt out a new history!
it’s coded to your simplest codon to triumph over adversity
To fight against oppression with a royal tenacity
The world around you is determined to make you forget!
A darkness that’s afraid of your light, that was born upset
But you’ll succeed with ease as your melanin skin absorbs light
just filling yourself with glory out of spite
Nothing can stop you from being queens and kings
We always have been, and will be, Magnificent royal beings!
With all that is going on in the world, it is very easy to get down on yourself. Especially when it seems like a large percentage of the world is against you just because you exist. I felt it was necessary to remind people like me that we are wonderful and offer some words that I would hope instill pride into them as they do myself.
