Walking gets too boring, when you learn how to fly…
How far is too far?
Isn’t it wonderful that the modern woman can do about 98% of what our male counterparts can do with twice as much zeal and quadrupled efficiency? Well, I could’ve said 100% but we all know we can neither walk around shirtless neither father our own babies because if we could God knows just how far we would have gone.
Just how far is too far in our revolution of women empowerment? Are we becoming too smart? Too beautiful? Too talented? Too strong? Are we becoming a threat to the very essence of feminism? Is our quest for equality more of a selfish claim for attention? Is being a queen proving to be a questionable journey that is becoming unfathomable within humankind? Are we just too much?
Well fellow queens, if anyone (read: male counterparts and the few jealous female species) tries to make you feel like you are too much of something, remember that we are ordained. We were created while they were made, molded into a deep, perfect creature that is capable of bringing forth life. There is never a ‘too much’, for the only limitations present are those we create ourselves. We are AMAZING!! We are so beautiful it makes me want to cry.
Women are so strong, from the damned cotton fields, to the white house. We, especially the black woman, are the very reflection of a fierce God. We have come so far to be intimidated by pathetic strains of inequality. We are the ones who have seen our children enslaved, sold and hurt. Men have abandoned us at our time of need, we have been rejected for not being good enough and have had to work ten times as hard for a quarter of the pay. We have had it and it is time, ENOUGH is ENOUGH!! We’ve got this and we run this.
Embrace art, dance your feet sore, laugh hard, love so intensely, cry if you must and slay ’em goals, but never ever give up your crown to ease another’s existence. We are superior beings and it doesn’t matter what the world thinks of us for we are beautiful, phenomenal beings.
“I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.” ―Madonna
Salute to all the queens out there slaying! Salute to all you enchanting beings. We all know walking gets too boring once you learn how to fly…flap your wings and soar!
