Black Girl Magic

Black Girl Magic

I was told that I wouldn’t make it.

Look at me making it.

I was told that I wouldn’t win.

Look at me winning.

I was told that I couldn’t get in.

Look at me I’m in.

I was told that I was bitter.

Look at me I’m filled with joy.

I was told that I would be last.

Look at me I’m first.

I was told I wasn’t smart enough.

Look at me I got honors.

I was told that I wouldn’t get the job.

Look at me I got the job.

I was told that I would never finish.

Look at me I finished.

I was told that my hair couldn’t grow like that.

Look at me I got a big healthy fro.

The list goes on forever, but I’ll stop here.

As long as I got that Black Girl Magic whom or what shall I fear?

“I can be and will be magical wherever this life takes me.”
