My black Princesses who are destined to be Queens one day!
I understand the pain and suffering you have endured since time immemorial.
I understand the love and respect you yearn from us,
Your black Kings.
You seek our love and respect,
Our comfort and security.
For our ambition and the ability to lead.
Yet time and again we have failed.
Just like Adam, who failed to protect Eve from deception.
For now, until the end of time.
I alone will continue to love and respect,
To comfort and protect.
And my ambition and ability to lead you, the black woman, into the future.
For all I ask,
Is that you give me a chance.
