Brown toes beat.
Black boy free from head to feet.
Song in heart,
Chords in fleet.
Black boy sing free your heart’s beat.
Hair making shadows,
Hair wound in rows.
Black boy let your free hair flow.
Pink lips smile,
Plum lips chew.
Black boy free lips sip and steups.
Palms that pale,
Eyes that cry.
Black boy feelings free to fly.
Black boy pride,
Black boy glee.
Black boy joy and black boy free.
