What have I done to you all..
but smile and shine my light for you all to see;
yet still you choose not to.
Only caught up on what you thought I was
refusing to see and believe all there is
Disdain and disparity upon me, yet still I see beyond your lies.
Reaching and connoisseur-ing beyond the headlights
– the same ones you get so caught up and busy in the shine,
as you relinquish all that you do not want to feel upon me
Yet still I rise
I am alive and well, flourishing and blossoming
just as those you felt depicted me better than me
but none can be, what the lord has ordained
sweet, sexy, fire hot and unrelentless-ly free to be all that she the black rain,
chooses to be
Beyond the disparity of gender and race,
realigned and reconnected
to the whole of her essence
your majesty, beauty full melanin, liquid gold
the queen of soul
