'Strong Sista'

I am a Strong Sista.
I am a Strong Sista who has persevered, where many have said that I couldn't.
I am a Strong Sista.
A Strong Sista who has chosen to let demeaning or degrading words roll off of her back, because they do not define me.
I am a Strong Sista.
A Strong Sista who feels able to finally speak her mind, for the very first time.
I am….A Strong Sista.
A Strong Sista who has suffered through many trials and tribulations of my adolescence years.
A Strong Sista who is learning to forgive, and forget past actions that were made by others.
I am a Strong Sista who is striving to achieve her goals by leaps and bounds, so that she can be successful for her family.
A Strong Sista who knows what she wants finally.
I am a Strong Sista who has three little ones that look up to her daily.
A Strong Sista who still knows that she is Somebody Special and Important.
Strong Sista
A Strong Sista who will succeed in all that she is striving to achieve, so that her future will be bright.
A Strong Sista
A Strong Sista who will take the necessary strides to never forget where she came from.
Strong Sista
Someone, who is the backbone of every African American family structure, whom would feel as if they were lost without her.
Strong Sista
Is what I am striving to become.
Strong Sista
Is who I AM.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
