Excerpt 2.0: The Ballad Of A Real Black Girl


From a forthcoming masterpiece entitled, The Ballad Of A Real Black Girl

You’re about to enter the soul of a real black girl – be easy.

Intentionally-driven

I stand in my lane solo
no apologies are offered for  the truth
that resonates so loudly
that the silence
breaks the sound barrier
and crushes the heart…

I am a symbol of practice
showering prisms of bright
where it is needed
as food for the un-enlightened

One mission
to translate the code and begin
to reveal
that – it – is – real.

Near the newness
I feel indifference
it’s the familiar depths
that I’m seekin’…

Folk be projectin’,
translatin’ languages
that can no longer
be spoken…

No trouble for me
I take it light as a toke
of the sweetest deepest smoke

Hidden in plain sight
and in possession of a
deep-rooted and ancient
sense of being

Of the many minions
a giant of men
I am seeking

A strength that deeply arouses
can also contribute to the pauses
and my visions clear
I overstand the fear

So cop a  few more lines
of what I need you to hear

Don’t fight…breathe it in…

Feel it like skin against skin
on stolen weekends
Peel back the layers
and receive the softness
of my intentions…
