I gave birth to a baby girl
She is black
And beautiful
With her black coffee eyes
And black hair

Her skin colour has a history behind
A history of black people fighting,
Fighting for peace,
Fighting for equality,
Fighting for justice,
Fighting for acceptance,
Fighting for rights,
And fighting for recognition,

I hope one day she see’s the beauty that I see in her,
And I hope one day she walks tall with her black beauty and make mama proud,

May peace and glory be with you my black beauty
