Embrace


No love for the Black woman is the emotion some display
Spreading like a disease it has infected many today
Breaking down the spirit of Black women along the way
Praising the degrading description of a Black woman's goals
Her worth determined by where she comes from
For every stereotype that has been portrayed
Contributes to the battle of the Black woman everyday
There is an antidote that cures us of this disdain
Begin by examining what changes we can individually make
To inspire, encourage, and celebrate Black women in a positive way
Reminding this world that amazing women aren't defined by one race
Look at your reflection and then make that change

Be a part of the solution and not the problem
