I am the black child

I am the black child


I am special, ridicule cannot sway me

I am strong, obstacles cannot stop me

I hold my head high, proudly proclaiming my uniqueness 

I hold my pace, continuing forward through adversity 


I am proud of my culture and my heritage 

I am confident that I can achieve my every goal 

I am becoming all that I can be

I am the black child, I am a child of God


This was a Michal Wynn poem.
