Black Queen Copyright© 2013 Adwoa Asiedu All Rights Reserved
Say Hello to a black Queen who is proud to be who she is.
I’ll tell you why I love being a black woman:
A black woman is full of beauty
A black woman is full of fire
A black woman exudes boldness
A black woman has inner strength.
She isn’t afraid to speak her mind
But she is wiser than what your eyes see
A black woman is a fighter
A black woman is a warrior
A black woman is powerful
A black woman is complete
Yes it is who we are.
We are all that.
Embrace being a black woman.
You were made to be great,
You were destined to be influential,
Now is the time to manifest our presence
Raise your hands up in the sky
Now is my time. Now Go.
