Only You Onleilove

Only you could posses the perseverance to rise out of pink ashes

Only you could experience trauma & loss, yet live to indulge in tribal dances

Only you could be called by Infinite Intellect to encourage, lead & teach

Only you have the strength to breach

those unspoken contracts, composed to cover & degrade your worth

Only you know that blood of your blood once ruled the earth

Only you have the grace, intelligence & compassion to be called a Woman of Virtue

Only you with your glowing melanated hue

Only you Onleilove

Only you

 

My mother didn’t give birth to any other baby girls…yet I am blessed to have a sister…

Happy Birthday Onleilove!
