Is It Even Worth It?

You were so shy
A young girl who couldn't say what she wanted
Who couldnt express herself
Like a little bird
Who was to scared to fly
But now that you do
Now that you can fly
And you fight for what you believe in
You’re the crazy black girl
Too sensitive
Too loud
Doing too much
Absolutely too much
You want to fight back
To stand up
Speak up
But it gets you nowhere
They don't listen
They gaslight
Say your wrong
Say you're overeating
Even though you know what your talking about
You want to make the world better
For people like you
You spent so long trying to find your voice
So many years silent
Not ready to fly
But now
That you are brave
And strong
Is it even worth it?
