The African Child

Black and proud,

Fragile yet strong,

You are the pride of the nation

You are the future of the continent.

 

The chains that bound your fathers

Have nothing on your body, soul and spirit

You are free to laugh,

You are free to live.

 

Standing in the deep waters of the Niger,

Owning the mountains and forests,

You are the true son of the soil,

You cannot be swallowed by the waters.

 

Who says you’re not beautiful?

Who says you’re not smart enough?

Your skin shines brightly,

Even more, your heart shines brighter with love.

 

Dark skinned or fair skinned,

You are beautiful, you are BLACK and we are proud!
