Watched

There is more to each of us than the color of our skin, how we wear our hair and our style of dress. Those things don’t reveal the real person. Sometimes we get caught up and come into agreement with people who want to put us down because we don’t measure up to their standards. Then for some reason; probably because we don’t think much of ourselves; we try to change to get the approval of the very people who put us down. At the end of the day they don’t have a heaven or hell to send us to.

So arise people who have been abused and misused. Shake off the filthy slime that has been smeared all over you. Step into the position that has been created and waiting for you. Love yourself even when you think no one else does.

I’ve watched and watched

But did not see

Too many people that looked like me

Not talking about beauty

Or ethnicity

But wisdom, insight and maturity
