As black as I am,
I will SHINE.
Look closely into my mahogany-brown eyes,
See how it looks like to be black.
In my eyes lies my Black-pride,
In my eyes lies my Black-passion,
In my eyes, is the voice that speak of black pride.”
I’m a star.
Look and Touch lightly my skin,
You will feel how it feels to be Black,
This skin, my African Identity,
Soft and smooth,
Black, Beautiful, Bold.
I’m a star,
I’m a Blackstar.
