The Definition Of African Pride By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

09 Mar

You have been the help

You have loved and supported everyone else

You have done all the work and acquired no personal wealth

The last one you have thought of is yourself

You are in the schools teaching the youth

You are in the hospitals and nursing homes being God’s tools

They are in the military and on the police force protecting you

From the boardroom to the halls of congress

From Johannesburg to Timbuktu

Most of them hold down full time jobs as mothers too

They are the proud

The Few

People could only aspire to be like you

In plain sight is where you often hide

You have done the worlds greatest magic trick

Right in front of everyone’s eyes

So when you are headlining the show

No one will be surprised

No one can doubt your abilities

Or your will to rise

You have withstood heartache

The pain and the lies

And still

You stand tall and strong

The definition of pride

Now get ready for spotlight

Its almost your time

Take a moment 

Go to your knees

Say Thank You!

Now get ready to rise

Angels always eventually get their wings ladies

Now get ready to fly and prepare for wonderful things

The Angels By Our Sides

Our Mothers

Sisters

Aunties

Grandmothers

Friends

And

Wives

Where would the black man be 

Without them at our side

The woman who is always ready to ride

The woman who is capable and able to drive

      Thank you! I am glad you liked it. I wrote it from the soul of me. Thinking about my momma and every woman that has loved and supported me.

      Carl.
