I love writing prose poetry about my good Lord Jesus Christ, and I love writing Black history poetry to share with the community.

I was raised up in a family that didn’t teach me to dislike or hate anyone, no matter the color of the skin. I am thankful unto the Lord for helping me to love everybody the same. 

There is good history, and there is bad history. We all can learn from history and not to repeat the bad history.

Following is a Black history poem I want to share with you.

“We Black Human Beings”

We Black human beings were created in the image of God, who also loves us Black human beings.

Many of us Black human beings love our light skin, light brown skin, medium brown skin, dark brown skin and dark skin complexions.

We Black human beings are profound souls with a strong will to live and survive against injustice and prejudice.

Our Black ancestors are the crowns on the heads of our Black history that sings joyful and victorious songs about us still existing today.

God smiled down from heaven and said, “I will create Black human beings to populate the Earth with Black men, women, boys and girls.”

We Black human beings are like the ocean waves splashing against the hard rocks of injustice, prejudice and discrimination that we Black human beings face every day.

We Black human beings are like beautiful furniture in the house of this world, where the dust of hatred against us covers over us every day.

We Black human beings are like the seasons that change — we go through the changes of not knowing when the policemen will come our way to shoot us down when many of us are innocent.

We Black human beings are like the full white moonlight’s glow — we glow our gifts, talents and skills all through the dark nights of oppression.

We Black human beings are like a beautiful pathway that other races of people can walk down and see how our Black ancestors prosper in this great nation.

We Black human beings are like the beautiful rainbow in the sky so that people of other races can see that we Black human beings have different complexions and like a rainbow of people up in the sky of life.

We Black human beings are the soul music to melt people’s hearts to change for the better to bring love, peace, unity and equality.

We Black human beings are beautiful to God, who wonderfully made us.

As long as we are beautiful to God, it doesn’t matter what people of other races think of us day after day.

The sunlight treats us Black human beings right every day.

The moonlight treats us Black human beings right every night.

The great blue sky treats us Black human beings right every day and every night.

Nature treats us Black human beings right all of the time.

We Black human beings are like a deep mystery to many people of other races, and many of them can’t solve our Black presence in this world because many of them were taught that we Black human beings evolved from apes.

Our Black ancestors are like a bridge that every Black man, woman, boy and girl can cross over to get to the opportunity of an education.

We Black human beings are like a good movie and can move people to cry, laugh, dream, love and not give up on hope for a brighter day.

God created us Black human beings for His pleasure.

We Black human beings had to go through trials and tribulations that our Black ancestors went through to make life better for us Black human beings today.

God is pleased with us Black human beings all around the world, for we are countless like the stars in the universe for God to marvel at us every day.

We Black human beings are destined to live in this world with countless other races of people who God commands us Black human beings to love every day, regardless of them looking so different from us.

We Black human beings are like the very huge iceberg that sunk the Titanic ship.

Our ancestors broke through the Titanic ships of slavery for us Black human beings to be in our rescue boats of democracy today.

God is for us and not against us Black human beings to break through the past to heal in the present and to spearhead many good things for us Black human beings in the future to come.

We Black human beings are like a hot iron to iron out the wrinkles of stereotyping that made many innocent Black human beings victims of violence and death, especially in this nation.

We Black human beings’ humbled and determined ancestors climbed high mountains so us Black people can be where we are all at today in this prosperous land.

We were carried on the backs of our Black ancestors who plowed with a mule in the hot sun to plant crops, picked cotton under the hot sun in the fields and worked hard in factories.

Our Black ancestors’ hard work was technology in their day to help make this nation great today.

We Black human beings are so blessed to live in this world with Christian people of every race that have helped us Black human beings to know that we are not alone and can hold up the flag of peace over our heads.

Many white Christian people joined in our march for justice and equality.

We Black human beings can truly thank God for good people of every race.

Those good people cheered for us Black human beings to make it this far in life, and they help us celebrate our victories over the past heartlessness and misfortune.

We Black human beings who are saved in Jesus Christ will be made like the angels when we go to heaven when Jesus comes back again.
