"Everything Would Be Embraced"

I used to believe that everything about life was wonderous


That growing up would be so much better than being a child.


I thought that when I got older, my voice would be heard


My individuality would be embraced.


I was wrong!


Still, no one listens


No one cares enough


No one hears me


No one wants to hear what a little black girl has to say.


But I won't give up just yet
