Dear my beautiful black princess,
These are the words I’ll tell you when your mother and my eyes gaze upon God’s creation
We’ll tell you, that you are beautiful, you are smart, you are unique
because you are
We’ll tell you how great black women changed the world
How they fought for rights that they never had
How this society will try to bury you underneath these men
How they will deem you lesser than everybody else, my daughter….
I want you to stand on the throne,
Claim what’s rightfully yours, your freedom
Capture something nobody ever grasped
Be a queen amongst the peasants that speak ill will
Conquer your oppositions with fierce kindness
Suttle anger, weird laughter, and unbreakable love
Let the world hear your name ring through the continents
All the way to the core of this earth
This earth is forever
You are the Earth’s reflection
So remember the rain/reign in your body
Remember the queens before you
They sing about you through all of eternity
Your brother may be my sun but you….
You are my earth cause I’ll take care of you, like planting roots
I will never let you down
This world will break the barriers I built for you
They will try to rage through your soul and break what is you,
Limit you into a a direction that isn’t even your lane
They will pave your lane like golden bricks
Make you skip down the aisle
To the wizard
You can’t let them dismiss you to a road, which speaks nothing to your soul….
I will show you what a father means to his daughter
I will show you how much worth this world will try to buy you, but your worth is priceless
I’ll hold you up to the world
I’ll mold the flame within you,
Feed it, so the world knows the fire you speaks
Volumes larger than mountains
Because being black is hard
But being a black woman is harder,
I know of your struggles, so I’ll guide you even farther.
The soul in you is the light
The peace in you is the truth
And the dreams…..
The dreams that you dream
Will be the world’s.
