By Karen James

I am  the happiness I seek
Deep inside there is no weak
Outside you see a shade of black
The colour you believe is yours to attack
Wrong so wrong
I am strong so strong
Black folks everywhere
Hear as I sincerely declare
Our time to rise is now
We no longer take a bow
Society claims we have no voice
Here to say we stand in choice
To take our seat at the table
You cannot shake me I am stable
I love this skin
That I live in
Today in our safe collective
I shared my soul, my own perspective
