Sistah, You're Beautiful (4/30a)

I only say this to you
Because I am feeling radical
Although I should not be
I never realized
That being yourself was radical
I never understood
How love has become radicalized
But some things just are
Just are and incapable of being understood
I should
Be working to dismantle a system
But it is much more effective
To dismantle mental barriers
Our own thoughts rule us
Better than The Man ever could
So I build you up
Even when Mister, Miss and Brothaman
Tear you down
Long hair
Short hair
Wavy, curly kinky hair
Brazilian stitch
African braid
Every color
Every shade
Straight road or rainbow
You are beautiful
It is your right
It is your inheritance
It is yours
