DEAR BLACK GIRL, YOU'RE A SOLDIER
DEAR BLACK GIRL, YOU'RE A SOLDIER.
This is my ode to you.
You're magical, beautiful… a novelty that many seek to imitate but can’t fully understand. Your presence is a force to be reckoned with.
I too, was once and still often am, filled with doubt, anger, and confusion, I too was once unaware of my power and the precious gifts that I have to bestow on others.
But even the darkest skies have stars to illuminate the night.
You're fearless. You’re brave. A fighter with a heart made of pure gold.
Your skin is so rich it glistens-filled with all the secrets our ancestors left behind.
Don't you dare alter it by bleaching. Lighter does not mean better, every shade of our black is beautiful.
Your hair defies gravity. Baby don’t you ever forget that you're out of this world.
Your laugh is so special. It has sass that no one else can match. It’s contagious, infectious, and bright.
Embrace your body no matter what the shape.
Embrace your femininity whether you choose to wear makeup or a weave. Embrace it.
Embrace those kinks those curls and those coils.
Remember that a rose can grow in-between concrete. Don’t hate yourself for making others feel uncomfortable. Embrace it.
Beauty comes in all forms.
Remember to laugh so hard your stomach hurts.
Remember to go with your gut instinct and live your life.
Remember to relax. You haven't figured it all out and you probably won't.
Happiness comes from within. Remember to be happy.
Do not lose sight of your dreams. Do not let the world steal your kindness. Never let doubt cloud your judgement.
Remember you are entitled to your emotions… angry happy or sad. They belong to you and no one else.
Dear Black Girl, you are a gift.
You are a solider and this is my ode to you.
