Young Black Woman

Young black woman what is your name?
Its pride and beauty for I have no shame.
I am a young black woman you know my name.
I am a black rose, a black pearl in white sand.
I have a broad nose and thick lips a Nordic Negro.
I am a suviour, a fighter, and a breeder.
A lover, a hater, and not a deciever.
I am like Angela Davis, tall and politically outspoken.
A diva, I am the Queen of the Nile.
A cup of steamy hot chocolate on a cold winters night,
A box of expensive chocolate when your ending a days fight.
Beauty is here because I am here.
Strong and independent wihout any fear.
You wanna know why?
Because I am a Young Black Woman!
