I am Black
I talk Black I walk Black
I read Black, I sing Black
I write Black, I watch Black
I had an account on Black Planet
I buy Black on Black Friday, shoooot every day
Gotta keep those Black-owned businesses in the Black

I cook Black, I eat…

Dear God of 2020
I thank you for this year
I thank you for the hearts you broke
For each and every tear

I thank you for the robots
The code in every build
I thank you for the lives you’ve saved
And every dream you’ve killed

I thank you…

There’s a song in my heart
And I barely know the tune
But it wakes me from my sleep
Underneath a shining moon

Always wanting something more

And what will I seek?
This song…

Scans are showing lumps
Burns, bruises, scars
The pursuit of…

What if I don’t become the wife
Of the love of my life?
Should I spend my final days to mourn and grieve?

What exactly should I do
If the one day that I rue
Is the day I suddenly chose to leave?

And if a woman he may meet

I put on a dress that used to be too small
Admired my self all fit and tall
I took myself out on the town in this dress
Then left the restaurant a little stressed

I longed for a night that was all about me
A ‘ treat yo self’ night…
