If my hair weren’t nappy

If my hair weren’t nappy

My lips so thick

My skin so dark

My speech so rhythmic

I could melt into the pot

And place the lid of

Respect, Peace, and Love on me!

Instead

I stand

Under God’s blanket of protection

And that’s alright with me!

Thank you to all the media, political advocates, politicians, and citizens

who stand with me.

P.S. My biggest accomplishment, however, is being the Mom of three wonderful sons and a wife for 33 years.  A picture of my sons is below.
