Black Girl Magic

By: Janelle N.

 

Asserting a place, and forging identity
any hue, any shade
sienna, tan, to ebony
unity is serenity
power in the tendency
spirited in formations
of beauty, grace, integrity
We are not a stereotype…
angry black girl, savage
something far greater
Black Girl Magic
Affirmations of greatness
Afrocentric energy
"baby hairs and Afros"
epic femininities
passionate consciousness
natural affinity
unique and dynamic
black excellence, divinity
We are inherently…
elegant and classic
bend, but never break
Black Girl Magic
An excellence that spills from the soul
it can’t be confined, reduced or controlled
a song of the pride of our inner being
a vision of the gaze of our outer seeing
a pride that transcends
Believes
Succeeds
Black Girl Magic
A love that frees
