"Everything Would Be Embraced"

I used to believe that everything about life was wonderous

That growing up would be so much better than being a child.

I thought that when I got older, my voice would be heard

My individuality would be embraced.

I was wrong!

Still, no one listens

No one cares enough

No one hears me

No one wants to hear what a little black girl has to say.

But I won't give up just yet
