This world will teach you to HATE, BLACK GIRL

              

 

                                                Welcome baby girl, welcome to the world

                                          Welcome little girl, welcome to a learning world

                                          Welcome black girl, welcome to a confusing world

                                 Welcome black woman, welcome to a cruel and hateful world

 

         As I welcome you into this world black girl, I will be as honest as an open book

                                           I will not tell you the lies they told me.

             I will not promise you the world because I may not be able to give you that

   I will not promise you that this world will treat you fairly because that is beyond my control

      I will not promise to always be there because truth is, I am not always going to be there

                                      I will not promise to always be there to guide you

                              because I will love for you to one day find your own way

I will not promise to always be there to protect you because no amount of protection I provide,

                                                 will stop this world from doing its part

I will not promise to always be there to catch you when you fall because I want you to learn to fall but

                                                    find the strength to not stay down

I will not promise you a life without mistakes or failure because mistakes allow you to learn and grow

and failing doesn’t mean your journey has ended, failing gives you a clear path towards your vision

I will not promise you a world without hate because this WORLD will TEACH you how to hate

                                      This world will teach you to hate the color of your skin

                                        T his world will teach you to hate your height

                             This world will teach you to hate the color of your eyes

                                   This world will teach you to hate the texture of your hair

                                                       This world will teach you to hate the

                                                            size and shape of your nose

                                     This world will teach you to hate the size of your lips

                                  This world will teach you to hate the size of your breast                               

                                   This world will teach you to hate the size of your waist

                                  This world will teach you to hate the size of your hips

                                  This world will teach you to hate being a girl, a woman

                               You know, that tall girl you see on the cover of a magazine

                                           the girl that is built like a “supermodel”

                                                   Or the one that is “average height”

                                             the one with a little more curves than you

                                               The one that is a little skinnier than you

                             lighter than you, more tanned than you, darker than you

                           with larger breast than you, with smaller breast than you

                                       with more or less “junk in the trunk” than you

                                 perhaps is the girl with good morals, values, beliefs

                                         Or the one with a powerful voice of her OWN

                    Or the dependent woman, the independent woman, the strong

                                                     intelligent and confident woman

                                                       The successful career woman

                                                   This world will teach you to hate

                      But above all black girl this world will teach you to HATE YOURSELF

                                           The world will teach you to hate all of you

So as honest as an open book, I tell you once again black girl, I will not promise to give you the world

or promise you a world without hate but I can promise you love, not just any kind of love but

UNCONDITIONAL love, AGAPE LOVE, you know that UNSELFISH and GENUINE kind of love.

                                         I WILL TEACH you what this world has taught me

                                          teach you the lessons I was taught and that is

                                                     to walk by faith and not by sight

                                                 With flaws and all, I will teach you to love YOURSELF

              Because some white men, indian men, chinese men, asian men and even the BROTHERS

                                          Will be reluctant to give you that type of love

                            I will teach you to empower and uplift other girls and  women

           With flaws and all, I will teach you to compliment other girls and women

                                                            But with all that I teach you

                   What I want you to always remember is when the world teaches you to hate

                Teach the world to love and when the world thinks it can write your story

                                           or define who you are or how you should look

                                         take that pencil away from the world, hold it firmly

                                                                  and write your own story

                                  write your definition of beauty in a way that pleases you

                              While writing, if the wording doesn’t fit or if you make a mistake

                                                     correct it and continue writing

                                                  because despite the color of your skin

                                                                 the color of your eyes

                                                                 the texture of your hair          

                                                       the size and shape of your nose

                                                                the size of your breast

                                                              the size of your waist

                                                            the size of your waist

                                        size of your hips and the sound of your voice

                                             In you lies every girl and every woman

            So from the inside out, Love every bit of that girl and every bit of that woman

                              And from the inside out  define beauty your own way

                    in your own words, speak it, wear it eat it, breathe it, own it

                                                  live it and embrace it beautifully

 

I dedicated this to my two beautiful nieces, Kadija and Naomi. As you grow, find what is divine within you, love it and nurture it beautifully! Kadija and Naomi, BEAUTY IS YOU!
