"I am unapologetically African"
O' how I love the sound of my ancestors shouting--
jumping for joy.
I recognize my heritage.
I appreciate it.
I am proud of it--
The mother land that I came from.
There is rhythm in my country.
There is gold in my country.
There is culture in my country.
I am versatile and I love it.
I will never apologize--
for the color of my skin.
I did not ask to be this way--
But I am proud of who I am.
I will embrace this for a lifetime.
And you can never take this precious diamond away from me.
