The beautiful Black Man
With skin so smooth and buttery brown
Muscles that show years and years of tremendous labor
Your stoic stance like a lion standing over his pride
The world is your kingdom as you assert your dominion over the land.
Your energy is so powerful
The dynamics you possess can sometimes overwhelm me
Strong and fearless
Yet so gentle and true
These are the things that draw me so close to you.
You are a force to be reckoned with
Your abilities and intelligence are limitless
Those hands of yours ripened with hard work — accomplisher of any task
Possibilities never cease to exist because your determination is like none other
My precious Black Man.
All my heart’s desires, I find them in you
My rock, my lover, my friends
Your love I will always defend
Even when the world seems more than what you can bar
I will be steadfast near
Your side, tenderly reminding you of your honor, strength, and pride.
Do not listen to the lies of society
As they try to dismantle you
As they personify fear in you
The truth they refute in pursuit to weaken you
You are a creation from God,
A beautiful, intelligent, wonderfully amazing Black Man.
I admire you
You inspire me
Everyday as I witness your hustle
Sacrificing play for work
Restless determination, striving for excellence because nothing short of incredible will suffice
My King, My Knight
All I want to do is be your constant reassurance
That I’m an exception to any rule
The love in me not only flows but encompasses you
Your body, mind and soul
Listen to me, don’t you ever give in to your anger or frustration
Keep your head held high
Never surrender your strength and pride
Remember your crown
My beautiful, Black man
My King amongst all kings
Everything you are is inside of me
Beauty, strength, pride, intelligence
No one can compare to your mighty presence
My strong, smart, beautiful BLACK MAN.
