Black women are told we are too aggressive,
lacking or always having to prove our femininity.
Black women are told that we cannot be soft
but the most unprotected, abused and neglected,
is the Black woman.
so let us be vulnerable and dainty
to go with the ‘soft aesthetic’
indulge in wearing pink,
pastel or bright colors,
or anything else we want.
because we reject your narratives of who we are.
