Poetry

Move Different

I don’t want you to recognize me

I want my smile to glimmer better

I need to be nothing less than

completely me

 

The next six months will lead some of you

To feel like you never knew me

To begin with

 

I want to move differently

You’ll catch me expanding, glowing, and think

 

‘Who’s that beautiful brown skinned woman

Whose presence brings you to your knees

While her energy demands more of you, for you’

 

Because no one with all that power

Wants to keep the rest of the world in the dark
