First Image of God
Dark beauty who first was made from cool earth,
Undeniably, all blood confirms truth.
Renounce lies that hold no proof
of sound reasons to devalue your worth.
Lies lead to generational dearth,
so eradicate self-hate of your youth
along with stories that called you uncouth
written by men who knew not of your birth.
In mixed veins of humanity’s pride
African blood has learned to survive
to prove you were the first image of God.
