Dear Magic Black Women

Dear Magic Black Women,

 

We love your curls and your curls, your straight hair and your slim figure.

We love your dark skin, your midtone skin, your light skin.

We love your love for black men and your undying loyalty to us.

We praise God for your strength when we are overcome by weakness.

We're totally in love with the general beauty you all have.

From your feet that run the race, hurdling hatred and oppression,

      To your head which glows with the halo of knowledge and love

When they come for you, We will shield your name

       We will fight your oppressors.

       We will feel your pain.

We will protect our families. We'll uplift our kingdom.

We will love you. Always and forever. More than anyone else will.

 

Sincerely,

Strong Black Men
