They call me black woman;
No monograph, just black woman!
Colored into a system,
Colored into a stereotype
No depictions of my strength or worth
Just black woman.
A name they estimate narrates who I am
No permission or consent from me about who I am or what i want to be known as
Just their depictions of what they peek from others
Giving me roots and identities falling short of who I truly am
Excluding my melanin and thick bottom
Which is much more than who I am.
