Black Child!.........Arise!!!

You!
come forth
from my black womb
the result
of black seeds merging
Black Child
your being here,
not an easy stay
it will be trying 

Coming from a place
which produces fruits
for the struggle
Black Child,
you're here
endure the challenge
get us out of the muddle 

The conniving world
knowing your presence
hell bent
on keeping you lower
Black Child,
show  your power
Manoeuvre your power,
with essence 

Combative, unrelenting
mind and soul
fight to teach you
human dignity and worthiness
Black child,
rise
to the challenge
Snatch the wielding weapon
--Education 

Fight!
Struggle!
break the harness
with might!
Show the worth of Black fruits
Carrier of great pride,
spirit
and more
for out reproduction
you come forth
Courageous,
powerful
like the lion
Let us hear you
rooooar...... 

Black Child!!!
