‘Be Natural’ – Inspired by Fertile Ground

Hey sister,
Daughter of lost Eden,
I see you all caught up in these thoughts and schemes
Like Desi, a pyramid unreal but seems
You are a fly in their web, sins
Of make believe to yourself, sing
Songs of freedom from these chains, see
The truth in between their lying lines, sing
Your song of natural beauty
Be natural

Big, black, beautiful, bold,
Pure, precious, priceless pearl

Their pawn, your insecurity in the black that flows through your skin,
Their victory, your distaste for your dark,
Kinky, strong rooted, shining glory that crowns you among princes

Big, black, beautiful, bold,
Pure, precious, priceless pearl

Like Makeda, the queen of Sheba,
Let the sons of Solomon sing praises to your body
Let them write scriptures, books, songs, poems,
About your ethereal beauty,
For you,
African queen
Be natural

Big, black, beautiful, bold,
Pure, precious, priceless pearl

Inspired by the song ‘ Be Natural’ from the group Fertile Ground
To all black sisters whose beauty compliments the sun….the moon…..
