Reparations

My sista,
how many times have I looked at you
through a white perception of beauty
and called you ugly?
I didnít see you as my reflection
when you were my breath
when I was your sight
My sista,
How many times have I envied you?
Not because you were my flesh
or because I was your touch
but because you I thought you werenít
Iím sorry

Experience is the Best Teacher

I was swallowed many times over
by the monster called modern woman
who lied to me and told me to
sacrifice my morals and temple
to become her. Although I knew she was wrong,
I succumbed and used her words as justification
ignoring all warnings, I proceeded
Now I join the rest and can no longer claim to be above naivete
however, I leave unscathed and bathed in true experience
