Dear Society, Sincerely A Black Women

My words are always misunderstood
 
Because I'm from the hood
 
But it doesn't show
 
I don't fit the average stereotypes
 
 I don't lift my fist when things don't go right
 
I don't kiss my teeth 
 
When I come across things I can't reach
 
I rather get teach and preached on how I'm going to get there
 
So society, keep your death glares, your idiotic posture and your aggressive tone..
 
Because according to me, myself and I 
 
I'm in my own zone
 
And I will find a way to get where I belong
 
The place of a Strong African American Queen
 
Where my steps are always clean
 
And when I walk...
 
Everyone stops  and stares at the scene , to hear what  I have to say....
 
Because I don't play 
 
The same game society does
 
I don't go anywhere but up
 
And I show love to those who come before and after me
 
Even though my words are always misunderstood
 
Because of the color of my skin
 
 
 
This poem is about: 
Me
My community
Our world
