Hey black woman

How you doing

I just wanted to say

You are beautiful

You are amazing

You are powerful

Did you, tell you this today?

I bet you didn’t

Remember?

 

But you remembered

the black man

Hates you

But you hate

you too

 

You say the world

is cruel but

You’re cruel too

 

You say the world

don’t accept you

But you don’t accept you

 

You say everyone has left

You but you’ve left you too

See the world is YOU

You make the world

 

The world is

Following you

So make the world

Love you

By choosing you.

 

Black woman

Choose you and the

World will follow you

Don’t blame anyone

Blame you

 

Love you and the world

Will love you

Be kind to you and the world

Will be kind to you

 

Keep the mirror close

and don’t look at anyone

feel good about you

And the world will

Follow you

The world is YOU

so be kind to YOU

 

Hey black woman

How you doing

I just wanted to say

You are beautiful

You are amazing

You are powerful

 

Did you, tell yourself

This today?

I bet you didn’t

Remember

Please remember YOU

Please choose YOU
