Black And Proud
My skin is a gift that I inherited,
once worn by royalty that fell from glory.
Passed down generations before me
from slaves to civil rights leaders,
torn and stained with blood.
My mother tried to convince me there's pride in it
but why do I get the feeling
that somebody died in it?
