Who Can Be Born Black?
and not sing the wonder of it
the joy the challenge
and/ to come together
in a coming togetherness vibrating with the fires of pure knowing reeling with power ringing with the sound above sound above sound to explode in the majesty of our oneness our coming togetherness in a comingtogetherness
who can be born
blac and not exult!

I am a Black Woman
the music of my song
some sweet arpeggio of tears is written in a minor key and I can be heard humming in the night Can be heard humming in the night ...... I am a black woman, tall as a cypress, strong beyong all definition still defying place and time and circumstance assailed
impervious indestructible
Look on me and be renewed
