I Am Me
A strong independent black woman.
Made up of melanin and dark brown honey eyes. I am me
From the color of my skin to the texture of my hair.
Black is beautiful anywhere. I am me.
I set goals. I am beautiful. Not judgmental
Making people understand. Black is me, I am me.
Being told that your lips are too big for your face
Or that you are "too white," even for your own race. I am me.
Always having to worry about the way I look with certain clothes on
Setting the days I have to put a different face on. I am me
Goals are hard to make when i'm silent all the time.
Well no more, I am me and black is mine.
