I am a bitch, A loner, a Princess/ Pinup/ Nubian Queen / contradiction of who the world expects me to be I am me unapologetically though I often apologize to those who mistake me for someone whom I shall never be. I'm a ballerina, a flower petal, I am the steel from the aft of the submarine I am a dream, I am a nightmare, I am the chapter in your books that you have white washed but you didn't use Benjamin Moore and your foundation is now exposed.
I am the bosom upon which the earth was founded and you owe me. For the thousands of years in which you have trampled my gardens and desecrated my womb And I want it. Fuck forty acres and a mule, I want real funding for public school. I want more equal opportunititiesI want you to stop stealing from me. I want you to admit what you've done and learn from it. I want you to acknowledge who I am and where I came from.
equal pay/ to close the school to prison pipeline /to Remove the hyphens from my description/ for everyone to have enough food in their kitchen. I want for everyone to have a kitchen, and a bathroom, and a pillow if they want it. We need it.
I am your frequent reminder. A beacon of light written in blood shining bright in the night, your Groundhog Day of dreams. And you shall keep repeating them and I shall keep reminding you of who I am. Of who I will be. Until I feel you have learned your lesson.
I am a girl better yet a woman, who believes that things can change. and I won't stop. I will not quit, until ALL the change, Every last ounce of it
