If a title was needed,
If people requested a box to be placed,
Around my exterior,

It would be Rebel,
It would be somebody,
Who does not conform to the expectations of others,

Does not confirm to what the past expects of me,
To what the ex expects of me,
Nor what fear expects of me,

I say what I want to say,
I do what I want to do,
People will either love or hate you for it,

Those people,
Overestimate the weight I give their opinion,
I’m just going to be me, unapologetically,

You don’t have to applaud,
You don’t have to cheer,
Just know, I am aware you are watching,

Need an example,
I wish for Black queens
To react accordingly,

“Black Barbie?
Nah, I’m an unapologetic,
Exquisite Black Queen,

Who’s intelligent, creative, courageous,
Confident, ambitious, and authentic.
My beauty is just a bonus!”
