Dear Black Girl,
I love to see you smile and with so much joy in your eyes.
I know the world is cold and sometimes its hard to find the courage to stand.
Remember where you come from,
Remember all your ancestors endured,
Remember the purpose of this all.
You are not another “angry black woman”,
You are not another single mother statistic.
You are living proof that determination and perseverance always shine.
Don’t ever let anyone take away everything you have worked so hard to become.
Dont you dare fret when you stand tall against the powers that work diligently to break your revolution down.
Be about everything you stand for.
Be you! Thats all any of us can do.
