Black Reign This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   You cast us down by generation,

Said that we weren't part of your nation.

Knocked us down when we were high,

Stole our wings when we tried to fly.

Now we're back with a better name,

Get ready to feel our black reign.



We're not being rebellious or seeking revenge,

We just want to be equal like white men.

We can wear your clothes and talk your talk,

We can do your jobs and walk your walk.

But it's time we create dour own new thang,

Get ready to feel our black reign.



No matter what good we did, you took credit for,

You beat our children and called our women names.

But we let it slide 'cause we're loving people,

We'd like to see everyone treated equal.

So the next time you decide to call one of us a bad name,

Just remember the coming our black reign.
