I Am

I am black, but it has nothing to do with my character

I am a black teen and that automatically makes me a target to society

I am a black teen girl, but I will not become another one of the world's statistics


I am an achiever

a God fearing believer

I am dream chaser

a future money maker


I am strong, but I do have a soft spot

but please don't ever think that I'll show any sign of weakness in front of the

weak-minded because my strong-mindedness might hurt

I am courageous and I fear no human man


I am much more than my black skin

I am a self driven miracle in this world

I am louder than a bomb

I am powerful!
