I Am

I am rapunzel with a distinctive melanin

And long eyelashes covering my bright intelligence

I am a Guyanese queen with bravery as powerful as a knight

I am a colorful star shining bright

I am your protector

And your guidance

Your voice when you are in silence

I am your sister and your friend

I am your family till the end

I am art and sound

A flower rising from the ground

I am a butterfly waiting to release

I am a strong, blue chest piece
