I Rise Above It:

As a woman, I’m trying to be content with me. When the pressure of the world is telling me that I need to have big hips, big lips, and straight hair. But I will rise above it. I’m trying to understand my place when the world tells me that your loud, ghetto and not important. But I will rise above it. I’m trying to support my brothers and sisters when the world is turning their back on them. But I will rise above it. I’m trying to find my place among Queens when the world tells me I’m not royalty. But I will rise above it. I’m learning how to support my man when the world wants to control and kill him. But I will rise above it. I’m learning to walk with style and grace while the world talks behind my back. But I will rise above it. I’m learning to love all of me when the world tells me what is wrong with me. But I will rise above it. I will always rise above it.
