CHIDINMA CHUKWUMA: PHENOMENAL BLACK WOMAN

Phenomenal black woman
Phenomenal black woman
Your walk is the definition of elegance
And oh your sway beautiful but exuding so much strength
Your smile always accommodating and loving never showing the hurt you have been through

Phenomenal black woman
You kill yourself so your children don’t have to
And bear the pain so they are always happy
Your arms are always comforting and your lips never complaining

Phenomenal black woman your sacrifices are not in vain
And your daughters have risen to take up your cause
They call us angry, opinionated, sassy, troublemakers
But we watched you suffer in silence for so long
So every time we stand up for ourselves
We wipe away your silent tears
And with every success of ours
A fruit is harvested for your days of endless toiling
Phenomenal black woman we are forever grateful for you
