Chains to my neck

Because of my ancestors i still suffer in silence. I still because racism is still alive I still suffer because of the color of my skin. I still suffer because of the color of my skin i still suffer because I am not light enough. I still suffer because I am to dark. I still suffer because I get told I look like a 60, year old woman. Why is that why can’t I love and embrace myself love and embrace my flaws love and embrace who I am. I still suffer in silence because of the chains on my neck. The chains are not there but the scars are still there. My ancestors were made to feel ashamed of who they were because of the color of they skin. Why not embrace why do I have to feel ashamed of who I am.

Insecurities

Should I be ashamed of who I am, because of the color of my skin. Should I be ashamed of my scars because of the color of my skin.

I fight because of my acne I fight because of my skin tone. I fight because I am a black woman. All my life I had to fight……..when a man looks at me he see’s his queen, but do I see a queen. In order to see what others see I have to embrace who I am.

I fight to be ashamed of who I am . All my life I had to fight. All my life I was mad to feel ashamed of who I am. I am the enemy in society eyes because I am a black woman.
