Because She Is Black

She is Black

She is talked down on, raped, oppressed

She is Black 

She is beautiful, intelligent, powerful

She is Black

She is accused, beaten, broken

She is Black

She is fearless, strong, determined

She will make it father than the world may believe

She has more potential than one will perceive

She is declared by Malcolm X to be the most feared because 

She is powerful, compassionate, honest, beautiful, sincere

and

Black

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
