Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

My Black Man

From the shortest strand of hair on
his head to the very tiniest crease in
his feet

My black man is strong and complete
The lusciousness in his lips
and the strength in his hips

My black man is ever bit of unique
The seriousness in his eyes and
even the tears when he cries

My black man is a man of emotions
And when he speaks everyone stops to
listen because what he says is "real"
My black man is a man you can "feel"

His shoulders are strong,
they can carry a lot of weight
And when you need him
My black man does not hesitate

He speak with knowledge and with
My black man is intelligent.
He is a man of promptness and
cares about time
But the best thing about my black man is…

My black man is mine.
