Unapologetically Me11:54 AM
Today I'm gonna wake up and let all the coils and curls on the top of my head flow every which way the wind decides to blow t...
I'm gonna look in the mirror at the dark frames of strength and late nights around my eyes. Even though I can see a mini mountain forming on the surface of the middle of my cheek I'm going to say with my well vaselined lips "you are... so beautiful. You're made in His image and His likeness shines through you".
I'm gonna put on my red and white striped shirt and my form fitting black bell bottom ripped denim jeans because "yeah I have a butt and what?!"
I'm gonna strut down the sidewalk with my head held high and my back up right and if you choose to cross the street because of my dark skin your loss. You missed the chance to see a 70's inspired melanin masterpiece up close and personal.
What you thought was harmful was completely harmless.
I might say ain't and y'all and throw grammar to the wind today.
I'm gonna be happy and love me because I know my worth.
You want to try and put me down? Hold me down? The truth that I know from my God will always be strong enough to pull me back to an upright position and back onto my feet.
Those stereotypes against me will phase me no more.
You know why?
Because today I'm gonna be unapologetically me.
