Medium Poems

1. “Black and Proud”

I am Black and Proud,
My skin a rich, deep brown.
I wear my heritage like a crown,
A symbol of strength, not a shroud.

My history is steeped in struggle,
But my spirit remains unbroken.
From slave ships to civil rights,
We’ve overcome oppression and broken.

My beauty is unmatched,
My culture so rich and diverse.
I’m more than just a color,
I’m a symbol of perseverance and worth.

So when you see me walking tall,
Don’t think to judge or doubt.
For I am Black and Proud,
And that’s all that needs to be spoken about.

2. “Black Magic”

Black is magic,
A spellbinding hue.
It’s a reminder of our roots,
A connection to our past that rings true.

Black is regal,
Like the night sky above.
A source of strength and power,
A gift of the universe’s love.

Black is beauty,
In every shade and form.
Our curves, our hair, our features,
Are all a cause for celebration and adorn.

Black is strength,
In the face of adversity and sin.
Our resilience and courage,
Show us that we always win.

So let’s embrace our blackness,
And never be ashamed to shine.
For we are Black and magical,
And that’s a gift that’s divine.

Long Poems

Black and Proud

I am black and I am proud
I walk with my head held high
Because I know my heritage is rich
And my culture is diverse

I come from a line of kings and queens
Whose strength and resilience echoes through time
I am the embodiment of their legacy
And I wear it with pride

My skin is a canvas of history
That tells a story of struggle and survival
From the chains of slavery to the fight for civil rights
My ancestors paved the way for me

So when I walk down the street
And someone looks at me with disdain
I stand tall and remind myself
That I am royalty in my own right

I am black and I am proud
And I won’t let anyone dim my light
For I am a shining example of excellence
In a world that sometimes tries to dim my shine

But no matter what obstacles I face
I will always remember who I am
My blackness is a badge of honor
And I wear it with pride and distinction

Black and Proud

With melanin in my skin, I walk with pride
My ancestors’ strength flows through me inside
From the Nile River to the depths of the sea
My roots run deep, stronger than a tree

I refuse to shrink, to hide or to pretend
My blackness is real, it’s not a trend
I won’t let their words bring me down
For I wear my crown, my melanin my crown

My hips sway to the beat of my own drum
My skin glowing, shining like the sun
I’m not ashamed of my full lips, my wide nose
All of me is beautiful, from my head to my toes

My history is rich, my culture divine
It’s the reason my soul shines so bright and fine
From Africa to America, our journey’s been rough
Yet, we stand tall and proud, resilient and tough

Our contributions to the world are endless and vast
From music to science, we’ve made an impact that will last
We’ve left an imprint on this world, for all to see
A testament to our strength, our blackness and history

So, I stand tall, unapologetic and free
A manifestation of all that I was meant to be
Black and proud, my spirit unbound
A queen with a heart that wears a crown.
