Living like everyone else makes you apart of the picture but choosing to stand out makes you the artist in front of the easel.

Goddess of confidence

Queen of beauty

Princess of dark magic

Persuade with beauty

Inspire with confidence

I am dark skies

Stars are my eyes

I am not a necessity

I am a delicacy

Intervene when intrigued by delusional fantasies

I don’t exist because of fairy dust, lust,

Or reasons that are inconspicuous

Endangered is how I came from dust of dust

I will birth my son's into men

I will birth my daughters into women

I will stir them into a strong nation

Discipling them off intelligence and patience

Loving them with a vision and determination

I see flawlessly black.

A friend and I collaborated on a drawing/ poetry project about the excellence of black women.
