Lola’s Birth

She is born everyday
And everyday she grows
She learns
She clings to the goodness in others
While battling the ignorance of some
She smiles at those that say shes beautiful
Confused by those that hate her for what makes her beautiful
But everyday she grows
She learns there are those who work to take her history from her
Her pride
She learns there are those who hate her
For not only being a women
For being a black women
But she keeps growing
She keeps working
She knows what defines her
And she won’t let it be someone’s hate that destroys her
