I am a girl
a girl who seeks compassion
who searches for opportunity
who searches for a meaning of reality in life.
I am a african american girl
a african american girl who refuses to be called black
black is color not an identity
black is a derogatory term to people of my race.
I am a intelligent african american girl
an intelligent african american girl who soaks up knowledge through her roots
she is not “smart for a black girl”
she is smart because she doesn't read the lines
she holds the lines as they float in the world around her.
I am a beautiful intelligent african american girl
her beauty doesn't represent the 180° natural curvature of her back side
her beauty is in her mind
the way she thinks speaks writes and draws is her beauty
her thought pattern intrigues herself when she thinks about eternity.
I am a writer, feminist, an african american, sassy, intelligent,
unique, indecisive, tall, creative, open minded, happy, goofy a girl.
There are no word that can describe me otherwise.
