Black Pearls Rise

Black pearls rise
Rise, confident as eternity
You have skin that was knitted with the secrets of the universe
Black pearls rise and open up like flowers do to the sun

Rise, confident as eternity
Drink from the collective knowledge of your ancestry
Black pearls rise and open up like flowers do to the sun
Memorizing the language of your ancestors

Drink from the collective knowledge of our ancestry
You are, African with the privilege of independence dripping with melanin, black gold
Memorizing the language of your ancestors
That long, they have been stealing your entire vocabulary from your tongue

You are, African with the privilege of independence dripping with melanin, black gold
You have skin that was knitted with the secrets of the universe
While long, they have been stealing your entire vocabulary from your tongue
Black pearls, rise!
