I Am Pride; The Chant

I Am Pride; The Chant

A Poem by kingblaq
"

I Am Everything.

"
I am the long lost story told in the dusty archives of some library in the days of old.
I am recorded. I am unheard. 
I am the silent dirge in the room of an infant succumbing to malaria.
I am the feuds. I am the wars.
I am the mistold story of savagery.
I am the lies.  I am the truth. 
I am pain. I am anguish.
I am resilience. I am royalty. 
I am the pyramids of the great northmen.
I am ingenuity. 
I am the brave warrior tribe from the sprawling south.
I am chilvary.
I am the sun. I am the desert. 
I am rain. I am the great forests. 
I am culture. I am art. 
I am the roaring lion in the pride lands  of the east. 
I am the carnival in the streets of the west. 
I am life.  I am the loamy soil you flowers grow on. 
I am root. I am the past. I am the future. 
I am the strength of a billion people. 
I am giant. I am vast.
I am black. I am beautiful. I am everything.
I am proud. I am Africa.

I love to study history. Africa had great history, needed to be written and to be remembered. Wonderful poetry written. I did enjoy.

This is an amazing poem that knocked me off my chair. Honest, truthful, full of both pride and humility,
this is so much better than the work I read from so called established poets. Wonderful!
