A Kwanzaa Poem

by the Seven Foot Poet

 

It’s about love

It’s about life

It’s about our culture

Our family our community

Our genius our birthright

 

It’s about love

It’s about life

It’s about our culture

Our family our community

Our genius our birthright

 

We remember our glory our stories

Yesterdays yesterday

Those that came before me

Today’s today

Rebuilding our way

Tomorrows tomorrow

Sunshine good times

And learning from our sorrows

 

It’s about love

It’s about life

It’s about our culture

Our family our community

Our genius our birthright

It’s about love

It’s about life

It’s about our culture

Our family our community

Our genius our birthright
