Scared to speak, so I write
Dare to live out your dreams
While changing a life
Bound deep, inside the White wall
Lies my abandoned soul
Trapped safely, in Black darkness
Full with empty words…
So I’ll keep writing until I suffocate
I’ll keep writing until my people straight
I’ll keep writing until,
until my words fill this emptiness of this existence
we call life.
“To make the change from the odd whispering,
‘I want to be White’…
Hidden in the aspirations of my people
To why should I be White?
I am a Negro and beautiful!”
No shade to the racist
But wait, I’m getting to ahead of myself
Let me get back to the basics
A, B, C…c…c…
Let me put my glasses on so maybe I can see
See past the fucked up morals
& bullshit that goes on in today’s society
Especially how niggas only looking for the titties and ass
Instead of a queen with class
Man I hate calling my niggas, niggas
“When they are just caterpillars
Prisoners to the streets that conceived them
So If I respect you,
We unify and stop the enemy from killing us”
But my nigga YG making millions “My Nigga, My Nigga”
Ain’t no need to be so serious
I just want a Man
That is as much King
As I am Queen!
But until then…
It’s just me and my pen
& with it I will crush you
You could never survive a day in my hood
Shout out to the WEST!
Rest in peace to Pac
Long live the rose that grew from the block
Try living within the blue lines
Hustling by making a rhyme
I’m just a young Black queen trying to look out for my kind
But I’m a rare breed that’s slowly dying
“Anyone can take everything from you,
but no one can take your education.
Anyone…can take…everything from you.
But no one can take your education!
So why are we still waiting?”
Waiting for the Malcolm X’s, Maya Angelou’s,
Rosa Park’s, Obama’s…
How many tears do I have to see?
Because a son being buried to early by his mama?
2017 and I’m still waiting to live out MLK’s dream!
But I refuse to let it be a dream deferred
Black nail polish
Black lives matter
Black is not just a color
It is a lifestyle….
This is not a poem
This is a declaration
I am not a writer
I am a visionary for this generation
Allow me to reintroduce myself
Scared to speak, so I write.
