Phenomenal black woman

Phenomenal black woman

Your walk is the definition of grace

And oh your sway beautiful but exuding so much strength 

Your smile always accommodating and loving never showing the hurt you have been through 

Phenomenal black woman 

You kill yourself so your children don’t have to 

And bear the pain so they are always happy 

Your arms are always comforting and your lips never complaining 

 

Phenomenal black woman your sacrifices are not  in vain 

And your daughters have risen to take up your cause 

They call us angry, opinionated , sassy, troublemakers 

But we watched you suffer in silence for so long 

So every time we stand up for ourselves 

We wipe away your silent tears 

And with every success of ours 

A fruit is harvested for your days of endless toiling 

Phenomenal black woman we are forever grateful for you
