Black boy


Black is not just a colour 
But a symbol of honour 
Black does not only signify a race 
But an advantage to set my pace  

For I am black 
Does not make me stark
Black I am born 
Does not make me dull 

The song of victory 
Dancing on my lips 
I am given birth to 
Strong and healthy with pride and dignity 

I am born to win 
Because I stand for victory 
For black is not just a colour 
But a symbol of victory and honour
