The Black Prayer

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



Why did you make me Black…

Lord…Why did you make me Black

Why did you make someone

The World would hold back?


Black is the color of dirty clothes,

Of grimey hands and feet.

Black is the color of darkness…

Of tired beaten streets.


Why did you give me thick lips,

A broad nose and kinky hair?

Why did you create someone

Who receives hatreds stare?


Black is the color of the bruised eye

When someone gets hurt…

Black is the color of darkness,

Black is the color of dirt.


Why is my bone structure so thick,

my hips and cheek so high?

Why are the color of my eyes brown,

and not the color of the sky?


Why do people think I’m useless?

How come I feel so used?

Why do people see my skin,

and think I should be abused?


Lord, I just don’t understand…

What is it about my skin?

Why is it some people want to hate me

And not know the person within?


Black is what people are “Labeled”

when others want to keep them away…

Black is the color of shadows cast…

Black is the end of the day.


Lord you know my own people mistreat me,

And you know, that just ain’t right…

They don’t like my hair, they don’t like my skin,

As they say I’m too dark of too light.


Lord don’t you think

it’s time to make a change?

Why don’t you redo creation

and make everyone the same?



God’s Reply”



Why did I make you black? Why did I make you black?


I made you in the color of coal

from which diamonds are formed…

I made you in the color of oil, the

black gold which keeps people warm.


Your color is the same as the rich dark soil

that grows the food you need…

Your color is the same as the black stallion and

panther, Oh what majestic creatures indeed!


All the colors of the heavenly rainbow

can be found throughout every nation…

When all these colors are blended,

you become my greatest creation!


Your hair is the texture of lambs wool,

such a beautiful creature is he…

I am the shepherd who watches them,

I will always watch over thee!


You are the color of the midnight sky,

I put star glitter in your eyes…

There’s a beautiful smile behind your pain…

That’s why your cheeks are so high!


You are the color of dark clouds

from the hurricanes I create in September…

I made your lips so full and thick,

so when you kiss…they will remember!


Your stature is strong,

your bone structure thick to with stand,

the burden of time…

The reflection you see in the mirror,

the image that looks back, is MINE!


So get off your knees,

look in the mirror and tell me what you see?

I didn’t make you in the image of darkness…

I made you in the image of ME!


Dipped in chocolate, bronzed with elegance, enameled with grace,

toasted with beauty, my lord, she is a Black woman…
