What does it mean to be a girl? Lonely and afraid? What does it mean to be a girl? Looked down on, no say, no voice. What does it mean to be a girl? Unable to catch her breath, unable to help others cries? What does it mean to be a girl? Inferior, unable to change? What does it mean to be a girl? No one cares, useless, and invisible. What does it mean to be black? Alienated and scared of. What does it mean to be African American? A threat to society, a threat to you and me? What does it mean to be African American? No more, gone, and extinct? What does it mean to be African American? Different, unusual, and strange? What does it mean to be African American? Too colorful, destruction? What does it mean to be smart? Incapable of making mistakes, depended on too much? What does it mean to be smart? uncool, nerdy, and weird. What does it mean to be smart? Stuck up, know-it-all, different. What does it mean to be all three? Looks like a triple combo of disaster to me. What does it mean to be a girl? Pretty, witty, and fast? What does it mean to be a girl? Holding power, having others drool after you? What does it mean to be a girl? Self hygiene and self care? What does it mean to be African American? Strong, intelligent, built for life? What does it mean to be African American? Once kings and queens, rulers? What does it mean to be African American? Beautiful skin the color of chocolate, milk, dark, and white? What does it mean to be African American? The origin of humanity, original, untouched? What does it mean to be smart? Capable of changing the world, helping humanity? What does it mean to be smart? Smart, intelligent, and special? What does it mean to be smart? The best, valuable, wanted and needed? What does it mean to be all three? It’s a weapon of mass destruction, I say. It’s a wonderful combination of beauty.
