How Do I Make Myself Visible As a Womon/Black?
by Nicole Harris

How do I make myself visible

as a womon/Black?

By walking in my purpose

By teaching my sons to bask

In their instinctive regality

Their nobility never being masked


My skin possesses melanin,

too much to deny

My womanhood is evident

anytime that I walk by

My smile conveys my pride

in all I’ve overcome

My laugh lets it be known

I’m not afraid of anyone


Some see it as conceit

I just recognize my birthright

A queendom is what I’m due

My life I’ll give up in the fight

Our legacy lies in our spirit;

The warrior inside WILL prevail

The fact that we have strength beyond measure

Inhibits our ability to fail


How do I make myself visible

As a womon/Black?

I simply follow the lead of the Creator

It shows me how to act

I always seek to glorify

Never to bring my Creator down

And because this is my motivation

I sometimes wear a crown

The jewels in the crown make me visible,

Even on days I don’t want to be

But at last I can look in the mirror

And truly love everything I see!
