Golden Girl - Poem by Terrance Woolridge

You have the right to say no
You have the right to be as strong as a lion
As gay as a flower, as smart as you like
You can wear your hair as you may
Neither straight nor Nappy should define your being
Let your will be that of metal
And your reason be that of your own
Some say this is a man's world, and I think they're right
But never forget you are the giver of life, my dear
Make your smile make you proud
Cause it has done wonders for me
Let your ponytail show strength in your shadow
Where light is absent
As you stand on your own, I hope your heart accepts pure love
And let the falsehoods of the fake fall by your wayside
Then give a hand to your lost sister
Who is trapped in the jaws of society and injured by its teeth
Tell your brother he is a king, and he will conduct himself as such
With only two pennies in your pocket
You are as royal as the water Sierra Leone
Let your apostrophes remain in humble places,
Or be done with them
I am not a fan of makeup, but I am a fan of you
So if you choose to dot your eyes with eyeliner
And cross your Tee's with mascara
I will love you no less
There is a time and place for everything but you are now
With your iron breast you can produce golden milk
To stop the hunger cry's of tomorrow, and give birth to the amazing
