Ebony's Pride

I am fierce, I am dark
I am a word that fought back
I am a nation, I am a people
I am a colour, I am black

I am a race, I am a continent
I am resilient, I am pertinent
I am beautiful no! I won't hide
I stand tall, I'm Ebony's pride

Apartheid I fought, my name is Mandela
12 years a slave, yes! I am Lupita
I am skin thick, I am colour proud
My beauty's song, I will sing loud

For freedom and hope are my life's story
Alas Victory, my own, I go down in history
As fierce, As dark
As a legend that fought back.
