What If .. ?!

[Ray&Dee]

What If…‎

~~~‎

What if a black girl knew that she would be desired by others only if she desired herself first, And that beauty is not in the mindset but the confidence she carries.

¤‎

What if a black girl knew that her lips are perfect as they are and she need not suck her cheeks in to be kissed.

¤‎

What if the sun could speak in words,

And the heat be exclamation

What if the moon could sing lullabies,

And it’s brightness be a cuddle

What if skies were mirrors, 

And reflects only truth.

¤‎

Perhaps the black girl would walk bold,

Perhaps she would pile aside lies she’s been told ?

¤‎

What if she accepted her life,

Maybe then she would smile often,

Or perhaps she would stop self harm !!

What if man gave her confidence.

¤‎

The Cruelty Of Self-Slavery

Verses the beauty of self-acceptancy,

Thoughts Of Brutality

Murdering self esteem and self identity.

¤‎

What if she knew her true worth,

Her true purpose on this earth.

Perhaps she’d never market her soul

Perhaps she wouldn’t feel so lone.

¤‎

What its all useless,

What if she’s worthless – Really.

Would it be her fault or her care giver’s,

Would it be okay for her to carry on with no purpose 

Or would society step in ??

¤‎

What if a black girl turned white,

Would her blindness turn to sight

Or would she accept

And turn away from other Black’s ?

¤‎

What if a black girl knew,

What if she knew ?
