thoughts on black girl wisdom

All of me is tired

of fighting battles

That were never meant to be won.

*

Love doesn’t mean I say yes

To things I don’t desire

Love means I just say yes to me.

*

Paradise lies at the feet

of those willing to surrender

To the pain of a past

That no longer matters.

*

Sweet bliss is like

Crimson moon come once

in a lifetime

pigmented rouge

like my ruby woo.

*

What happens to little black girls

when they are asked to dim

their light

they shine even brighter.
