The Black Gold

Nokulunga Majozi

They’ve tried everything to change me They’ve tried everything to hide me They’ve tried everything to run away from me For I am who they are   They are ashamed of me They look down on me They never see the best in me But always look for the worst   Oh, how I wish your great grandfathers Were still alive Oh, how they use to keep me high How they us to Talk the talk Walk the walk Fight the fight and, Be the best that they could be. Without looking down on me For they knew that I am who they are   But you!!! Born frees Don’t seem to understand how precious you are. But don’t worry I understand That you don’t know the real world Because.   You’ve never talked the real talk You’ve never walked the real walk And you’ve definitely Never fought the real fight.   You try everything to lighten me Because you don’t realize the beauty I bring You try everything to remove me Because you think I don’t make you feel good enough .   When are you going to accept and appreciate That this is who you are No colour is greater than me No colour can replace me For I am greater than any other colour I am after all the GOLDEN BLACK   So to you born frees I say black is beautiful , Appreciate black , Because is who you are And black is what makes Even more beautiful
