Bold

1:39 am
How many years did it take for you to be bold?
Too many times did you fold
Molded thyself; wiped the dirt off my shoulder
Got colder but warmer all at once  
Drunk off faith and peace of mind  
No man can block my shine
Brighter than a mag light in the face
Draped in grace
Remember when you used to fold
Broke that mold; reinvented and reimagined
Manifesting and staying in my magic
Tragic
People tried to stop that
Black is the color they don’t like
Brown is the skin they resent
Be Black
Be Bold
Be Present
