Dear Langston Hughes
Dear Langston Hughes,
What happens to a queen that’s darkened?
Does her skin become a question of success or failure
Like a man's’ determinate whether to be “truthful” or “play her”
Does she have to fight to be enrolled at a university?
Or are her ethnics only valued to create diversity?
Does her awakeness intimidate the common mind?
Or is she condemned because her body, and lips are too defined?
Maybe it's just the history that clings to her,
that have evolved the be the wings her,
Making her hair naturally defy gravity
Lifting her above the cavity
Of this world were man see skin
and man see sin
But she sees heart and that's what sets her apart
Suppressed silence makes her hardened
so will never really know what to happens to a queen that’s darkened.
Another Darkened Queen
