Young Queen I see you

Smile so big it’s the sunrise

Some lies

You once told yourself

I’m not beautiful

Honey child please

Nickel for my thoughts

If I collected all of our insecurities and sprinkled them like

seedlings in the earth

We’d be able to feed the hungry

Quench the thirst of our masters because they just couldn’t stop coming after us

Your beauty is skin deep

Lifted

You uplift those around you

Anxieties for what?

They jealous

They can’t be us

You’ve found yourself

Hidden between the coconut oils and mango butters

You found the recipe to life

The natural essence

You’re in your element

Learning to love

And be loved

And to love again
