I saw her brown skin

Her BLACK.

The pavement beating down on her face…

Undeniable Ability.
Agility.

Aging

Her pores now open
From years of hoping

Her tomboy teenage daughter…was still only “going through a phase”
at the age
Of 21…

She prayed & she preyed.
Saying:

“Don’t Wear That!”

…….
Looking over her shoulder
To make sure no one she knows sees

Ashamed,
Oh my God, you look like a boy! Go & change, PLEASE!
…….
She. Pleads
We have to make sure the rest of the world is comfortable, not You.
Not in YOUR own Skin…
