As we wrap up Black History Month, I can’t sit without saying a few words.
I am black, and I know black is beautiful.
I am dark, and I know black is graceful.
Black doesn’t hurt; it’s peaceful.
Black forgives; it’s merciful.
Black is kind; it’s grateful.
Black is ambitious; black is hopeful.
Black is who I am.
Black is how I was born.
I was born to blow.
I was born to grow.
Growth is what we all go through.
Growth is what makes us learn.
Learning allows us to navigate circumstances.
Learning makes us appreciate situations.
The more we appreciate things, the more we grow.
The more we grow, the more we tend to glow.
I encourage you to keep shining.
I encourage you to keep winning.
