Dear Blk Wmn

By Aura Shakhar

Dear Black Woman,

You deserve to be free.

I deserve to be Me. I deserve to explore.

Dear Black Woman,

Being free is a choice. It’s A choice to turn an eye.

It’s a choice to rejoice.

Dear Black Woman,

I love your style. I love your power. I love your grace.

Dear Black Woman,

You’re more than your style. You’re more than your taste. You’re more than your face.

Dear Black Woman,

We were the first. We are creators of the human race

Dear Black Woman,

So protect yourselves. It’s leashes out there, and on your skin brown skin they will rest.

Dear Black Woman,

No matter what’s uttered. They shall always crawl to us for the worst and the best.
