Queen in Effect

I am a Queen, a supreme human being

I bleed gold and my words are bold

I am a Black Queen, though it may not be easy being green

Being black can be just as bad, sometimes even sad

But as a Queen, I take pride

Can't you see it in my eyes

My dark chocolate skin may not be in style

But the way it radiates and glows is worth while

I am an Educated Queen, flipping through pages made of trees

My knowledge can put professors to shame, make them curse my name

I have the power to create change, my intelligence I will never exchange

I stay up all night, feeding and growing my mind

Knowledge is power and throughout my life I have blossomed into a flower

When you look at me, know that you are looking at a Queen.
