A Wonderful Poem, Just Wonderful

With all the bashing going on in the world today we need more caring thoughtful things to be said. The poetess does it beautifully. More black men should be hearing more positive things every day.

 

Beautiful Black Man

by Victoria Z



Like a lion that stands over his pride

And has dominion over his land

You are fearfully and wonderfully made

Strong Beautiful Black Man



You are a centrifugal and driving force

That draws me deeply into you

You are everything that my heart desires

Your love I could never refuse



Even in those times when it seems

That the world knows not your name

I will always be there to remind you

Of your strength, your pride and your fame



Though most personify fear of you

Because of what they do not know

For it is not what their eyes can see

But rather what their hearts truthfully know



That your abilities are limitless

Your hands can accomplish any task

Even when it seems impossible

You always manage to show contrast



I am only trying to reassure you

That I am the exception to the rule

That I will love you no matter what

Win, draw, or lose



Even when you are feeling

That you have lost your place in this land

Sometimes being portrayed and even told

That you are less than a man



Don’t you give in to anger

Please don’t hold your head down

Exhibit your strength and your pride

Remember, you wear a crown



Because You are still a King amongst Kings

In my world, you are high in demand

Remember, I do love you no matter what

My Strong Beautiful Black Man!
