Sometimes I Don’t Feel, 100% Black
©  2016  Sy’needa Penland

Race is a label,
a mentality,
not a culture;
Fabricated
folklore.

Emasculation
of the Spirit,
weakening of the
Soul’s core;
Mental enslavement
of the Mind
once more;

Kidnapped!
Torn from sacred roots,
reigning from the deltas
along the ivory shores.

Sacred streams
along her Nile,
the most fertile
of her darkest isles.

Her people.
Her soil.
Her blood.
Her bile.

Rich is her core.
Crystal erosions
of Mother Time;
Remnants of the
Great Divine;

Her people,
shall reclaim
her essence
once more.

To feel black,
Is to be black!
No matter where you are!
