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!
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.
