Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into daybreak that's wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors game,
I am the dram and the hope of the slave.
Here's to a MARVELOUS Monday
