Black woman
What do you desire?
What burns that fire in your eyes?
That rises my pressure
And makes me give respect
When you carry yourself that way
The only way a woman of your caliber
Should carry herself…

Black woman
What is it about you?
That makes a brother smile
While in deep recollection
Of the many blessed ones
That have crossed his path

Black woman
Where do you get your strength?
To deal with us in our bad times
As well as our successful ones
Fighting off the lure of men from other races
To show loyalty to your own
Knowing the only ones who can really appreciate us
Is you…

Black woman 
In your presence
I am in total awe
For the more I try to understand you
The more confused I become
So instead of asking more questions
I’ll just enjoy your beautiful vitality
And escape into bliss
When we encounter each other again..

I thank you
Black woman 
For existing..
