Rise Kings and Queens, Rise…

Rise Kings and Queens, Rise!

Made of beautiful stars,
that’s what you are…
Gently fabricated and smoothly crafted into various tones of melanin coated skin.
Hair of wool made in the Lord’s image
Empowered by His spirit within!
Perfectly Imperfect in all your ways,
Unapologetically black for all of your days!
Be proud of who you are,
Know where you come from and don’t be broken by shame.
Lift your head, push them shoulders back and hold that crown up high!
Bare your cross all the way to your throne,
For you are worthy in our father’s eyes!
Be steadfast and do not waver!
Don’t quiver in fear, instead be braver!
There is a power they so fear in you and
It’s hidden because they had to instill fear in you,
But it’s time to awaken the inner you!
For you’ve been sleep for far to long
And that magical essence,
Dormant for far to long,
But its been brewing, simmering,
And making you strong…
Stronger than you’ve ever been!
So rise, Kings and Queens rise,
all the way to the top!
For God is your SWORD and with Him you can not be stopped!
It’s time to let your royalship reign,
it’s time to claim the true blood of your name, its time to set yourself free, break the chains, ‘cuz it’s time to stop conforming to societal ways.
Be a freedom thinker and freedom writer, a freedom seeker and freedom fighter,
a freed spirit, a love inspirer,
A community uniter and a soul igniter!
Set an example, change the black man’s creed!
Set new standards for the status quo
So your children can be freed!
Because you are gently fabricated and smoothly crafted into bronze tones of melanin coated skin.
And you hair is made of wool as you are made in the Lord’s image and
Empowered by His spirit from within!
You are Perfectly Imperfect and
Unapologetically black,
So know when to be humble
and when to fight back!
Lift your head, push them shoulders back and hold that crown up high!
Bare your cross all the way to your throne,
For you ARE worthy in our father’s eyes!
When you do finally claim your preordained throne,
You can let out the most grateful sigh,
And utter these words…
“It’s finally done,
There are no more battles to win,
for I have now won!”
So Rise!
