I am the light on your dark days.
The good that makes you forget your bad ways.
I am like one of those Fridays when you just got paid.
I am that wonderful walk in the park.
I am surrounded by dark, but will forever try to find what’s bright.
I am more than my hips and thighs, beautiful face, and big brown eyes.
I have lips that won’t tell you lies.
I am beyond descript.
Everything about me, you love, ‘cause I am a trip.
A trip that’ll take you on a journey.
A young, courageous black woman, you can’t take that from me.
I am the girl next door.
I am what you’ve been waiting for.
I am your desired gift under the Christmas tree,
I am everything, ‘cause that’s who I choose to be.
I refuse to be another copy.
I am the southside of Chicago.
I am love, because I say so.
I am your warmth on late, lonely, and cold nights.
I am… MORE.
You’ll regret letting me walk out your door, but me ?
I’ll be alright.
