I am Solange's cool,
untouchable sunkissed curls and calm vibes with a striking tongue,
I am Beyonce's presence,
a force of nature that was blessed by the heaven's above,
I am Tina's perseverance,
an ocean of knowledge,
with tides that steal back history's lies,
I am India's love,
an earth mother who pours and nurtures,
a goddess led by angels,
untouched by mortal cynicism,
focused on the eternal.
I am Whitney.
I am Michelle.
I am Zendaya, Aaliyah, Viola, Lupita, Chloe and Halle, Yara...
I am the unspoken magic of black women come and gone,
I am the light that will not dim,
the fire that will not die,
the moon that you curse and the stars that you wish upon,
and I'm, were, not going anywhere.
