Stick To Your Roots
Young girl with the curly hair,
Eyes low cause life ain't fair,
Having people ask - if your okay?
As if they have a hint for a care.
When you walk
they're givin' you long stares
Cause you're curvaceously divine, with melanin that glares
They can't handle that
So they'll feed lies to your insecurities
But don't make the enemy your inner me
I'm here to pass along this - little tid bit,
that with a little faith, all those negative thoughts can easily be dismissed
You have the power to be just as good as them, if not better
So how dare you marry new dreams !
Do away with your scarlet letters !
instead, plot twist it for your actors and imitators,
it's YOUR story, be the illustrator !
Time to rise above your doubtful thoughts
and b r e a k through barriers, no matter the cost!
Grab God by your side so you won't get lost
and don't stop until all your T's are crossed.
Don't forget that Onyx and Diamond birthed you
So, it's going to take heat and pressure to mold you
you have the shine that miners look to
so, lets show them that through coal,
light can shine through
Don't get caught in temporary situations
Just think back to your strong foundations
you're a pearl baby girl
you bring beauty and radiance into this world
so don't for a second make them doubt your crown
there's so much beauty dripping
from the beauty of your brown.
