Does my blackness offend you?
Does the lightness of my skin offend you?
Or how about my black features?
If I become angry why do I become an “angry black woman?”
Why not an angry woman?
Does it matter that there are many of me and few of you?
Now you know how I feel when I watch a movie.
One in a billion I am.
But I will not be gunned down by my skin.
I will not be held back by my skin, but
I will achieve with my skin,
And be happy with my skin
My features, color, race, or religion is not your priority,
But it is mine.
I will be heard because,
I am one in billion.
