HEY Black Child

By Useni Eugene Perkins



 










Do you know who you are? Who you really are?

Do you know you can be what you want to be? If you try to be what you can be?

Hey Black Child,

Do you know where you’re going? Where you’re really going?

Do you know you can learn what you want to learn? If you try to learn what you can learn?

Hey Black Child,

Do you know you are strong? I mean really strong? 


Do you know you can do what you want to do? If you try to do what you can do?

Hey Black Child,

Be what you can be. Learn what you must learn. Do what you can do. 


And tomorrow your nation will be what you want it to be.
