What If .. ?!

[Ray&Dee]
~~~‎
What If...‎
~~~‎
What if a black girl knew that she would be desired by others only if she desired herself first, And that beauty is not in the mindset but the confidence she carries.
¤‎
What if a black girl knew that her lips are perfect as they are and she need not suck her cheeks in to be kissed.
¤‎
What if the sun could speak in words,
And the heat be exclamation
What if the moon could sing lullabies,
And it's brightness be a cuddle
What if skies were mirrors,
And reflects only truth.
¤‎
Perhaps the black girl would walk bold,
Perhaps she would pile aside lies she's been told ?
¤‎
What if she accepted her life,
Maybe then she would smile often,
Or perhaps she would stop self harm !!
What if man gave her confidence.
¤‎
The Cruelty Of Self-Slavery
Verses the beauty of self-acceptancy,
Thoughts Of Brutality
Murdering self esteem and self identity.
¤‎
What if she knew her true worth,
Her true purpose on this earth.
Perhaps she'd never market her soul
Perhaps she wouldn't feel so lone.
¤‎
What its all useless,
What if she's worthless - Really.
Would it be her fault or her care giver's,
Would it be okay for her to carry on with no purpose
Or would society step in ??
¤‎
What if a black girl turned white,
Would her blindness turn to sight
Or would she accept
And turn away from other Black's ?
¤‎
What if a black girl knew,
What if she knew ?
