I am the black girl

I am the black girl.

I wonder why people aren't confident in their skin.

I hear "you're ugly and you're fat."

I see tears and broke hearts.

I want for people to feel wanted.

I am the black girl.

I pretend that life is a pot of happiness.

I feel as if at times I'm alone.

I touch the souls of a slave.

I wonder if I'm too dark.

I cry watching the happy white family.

I am the black girl.

I understand what's written in the history books. 

I say believe in yourself or no body else will.

I dream to be known as an achiever.

I try to uplift all females.

I hope everyone self esteem uprises.

I am the black girl.
