I Am A Black King

by Intellect


I am a black king, so treat me as such,
Because I have power within my touch;
After all these years, I still survive,
And I walk with the strength of an African Tribe.

I am a black king, so show me respect,
Because I was born with an instinct to protect;
No matter what you say, I know I belong,
My soul sings like the voice of an African song.

I am a black king, so let me lead the way,
Because I am a man whoís here to stay;
Though I built this country, I know where Iím from,
And I walk to the beat of an African drum;

I am a black king, so recognize my glow,
Because Iím proud of who I am and Iíll let you know;
Royalty is evident, just by watching my stance,
And Iím swift like the movement of an African Dance.

I am a black king, so show me your love,
Because I can reach as high as the sky above;
And love of myself is what I feel inside,
And when I speak you will know my African Pride
