This is for my black girls,

with kinky hair

And attitudes that know how to take it, there.

This is for my black girls,

who stay strong,

Even, without the black men they’re “supposed” to be counting on.

This is for my girls,

who’s children …

Set the foundation,

for the most powerful nation,

of which she has no relation.

This is for my black girl,

in the white house,

with more qualification than her spouse.

This is for my black girls,

who’s sexuality…

has been taken without consent

Tell me i’m ugly,

then rape me,

contin-uous-ly

with images that don’t describe me.

Pick apart my bod-y

For others to appropriate

Because it didn’t look good,

when it wore my face.

THIS is for my black girls,

Who deter their dreams,

because we are not embraced

in “that” space.

This is for my black girls,

who have to be twice as good,

to re-define the image,

Everyone has tried SO hard to…erase.sad-black-woman
