Faith This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Highlighted dread locks,
three-and-a-half inch heels,
tight-fitting blue jeans
and her boyfriend's sweater.
Struttingaround like it's nobody's business,
head held high,
self-confidencethrown to the wind -
New York is a scary place,
and she's the scariest ofall.
The sweetest smile,
the meanest glare,
her deep brown eyes willplow right through you.
Black pride,
woman's pride,
stand tall andsing it loud -
     my best friend,
          my rolemodel,
               myFaith.
