Hey Black Child

Countee Cullen

Hey black child to you know who you are? Who you really are? Do you know that you can be what you want to be? If you try to be what you can be?

Hey Black Child

Do you know where you going? Where you really going?

Do you know you can learn what you want to learn, What you try to learn, what you can learn?

Hey Black Child

Do you know you are strong, I mean really strong?

Do you know you can do what you want to do, If you try to do what you can do?

Hey Black Child

Be what you can be, learn what you must learn.

Do what you can do and tomorrow, your nation will be what you want it to be.
