From my very inspirational friend Tanyeno xx

So

I Will Not
Apologize For Myself
Any Longer

I will Walk With My Head Held High
Curve Of My Body Floating Gracefully By

No Twerk

No Work

Owning
This
Life
Instead

Because I remember Who I am 
Now

 

And I want You to
Too

Time To Remember Traditions
Which honored
My Presence
Word
Expression
and Body

As Blessing

Not Curse

To Be Snuffed Out
Silenced
Hidden
or
Killed

I Am Charred
By Your Fire
Already

Survivor

My Emotion Meeting Wisdom
Causing Woman
Who Consumes The Little Girl who Bowed At Your Feet
Recycling Every Idea as if it were her own

In Awe
At Her own expense

She Is melted
In Me
Leaving The Memory
Of
Ancestor Queen Goddess Warrior Intact.

Original Her

Who Doesn’t Recognize Your specially Carved Out Role

Why At Every Turn She Who Is I
Rejects Your Rejection
Dismisses Your Dismissal
Re-Defines Your Program
