Nothing More Beautiful

The truth of the matter is...

There is nothing more beautiful than a black man

Whether five-two or six seven

Yellow fabulous or chocolate heaven

There is nothing more beautiful than a black man

Long and lean

With deep brown eyes

Wavy hair or dreads

With strong thick thighs

There is nothing more beautiful

than a black man.

Bald head with goatee

Cornrows or a fade

A little thick, a little thin

Oh, the choices to be made

There is nothing more beautiful

than a black man.

Scholarly or not

Wall Street or hip hop

I'll sing your praises

To the mountain top

Head of the home

Provider and lover

Obedient son and loving brother

There is nothing more beautiful

than a black man.

A mighty protector you've proven to be

Sacrificing your life to keep me free

Working for crumbs when the table is bare

Praising the lord, leading family in prayer

There is nothing more beautiful than a black man

Holding my hand when fear emerges

Remaining faithful, suppressing your urges

Proving your strength by turning the other cheek

Having high hopes when the situation is bleak

There is nothing more beautiful than a black man.

Treating me like the queen I was born to be.

Never disrespecting, dishonoring, or disgracing me,

Giving me credit when it is due.

Oh, black man, how I honor you

There is nothing more beautiful than a black man.
