How can a Rose speak?
What can capture the beauty of a black woman
Like a Rose?
At the sight of sunlight
It blooms in great delight
As sure as life
It grows and thrives
As steady as time
It cracks open wide
A beautifully formed masterpiece
A Tender Symbol of Peace
It carries a gentle tranquility
That can be matched only by its purity
Delicate and defensive
Is the queen of the garden
Precious and powerful
Are the Roses and its thorns
What can capture the beauty of a black woman?
If not the Wild Wild Roses
When other beauties cannot speak
The Rose will be there to Preach.
