"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


FIGHT

No yelling

Just loud talking

No fists

         Only words

                      SPEAK

They called my home girl devil

They called my home girl alien

They called my home girl weird

          SAY WHAT?

Only I could see those tears

                              Invisible tears

                                  Dripping DOWN her face

I told those kids a thing or two

Or maybe a hundred

              BABY Precious jewel

They got it all wrong

We got this

I'm trying to be STRONG

                           This brother-type

                                 Game

                             Play it, harder

                                 LOVE

This lifeline. Blood.

Quit braiding that hair.

          STAND UP

It's on

I'm ready to kick some butt
