♥Written for the two most important people in my life.  My soul aches when you’re away.  My heart skips a beat when I see your face.  My tensions ease when I watch you sleep peacefully.  True loves of my life and the best things that ever happened to me.♥

 

 

Oh, what is this world coming to,

Whereas my siblings of culture do slain one another?

Oh woeful soul and saddened heart

Whose tears would disappear if we loved one another

Oh, what is this world coming to,

Whereas our siblings of culture do shame our heritage?

Oh woeful soul and saddened heart

That won’t let me forget our own black suffrage

Oh, what is this world coming to,

Whereas our siblings of culture do stay behind?

Oh woeful soul and saddened heart

That grieves for that little black child of mine

Black child of mine, sweet child of mine

Stand straight– and learn to stand on your own

With black pride in your heart

 Black awareness in your brain

And black face in mirror

Black child, be strong

Oh, little black bird with crippled wings

Struggle, never give up, be destined for flight

And I, your black mama,

Will soar proudly by as my little black bird reaches its utmost height

Oh, what is this world coming to, 

Whereas my siblings of culture no longer seek to find?

But my woeful soul and saddened heart

will enlighten

Because of that little black child of mine!
