Sometimes I Wish I Was a White Girl

Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because being a black girl ain’t fun

We are looked over and ignored

And can’t seem to please anyone


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because being a black girl brings the blues

You get called a bitch

for having an opinion, being strong

And constantly reminded

“aint nobody tryna marry you.”


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because being a black girl is hard

Navigating the waters of life

And being made to play every bad card


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because they get their prince charming

They get the happily every after

And considered America’s darlings


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because their beauty is considered classical

They are branded as the standard

While we get compared to animals


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because their sons are void of worry

They get get to be wild and free

While our sons have to leave neighborhoods in a hurry (Lord knows they better not run or jog)


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Because they can go anywhere to get help

They can walk up to a random door

And not wonder if behind said door will be their last breath


Sometimes I wish I was a white girl

Wait! Hol’ up!

I’m not

I’m a BLACK GIRL

deep as the Nile…

giver of life…

MOTHER…

mysterious as the pyramids…

a force to be reckoned with…

DAUGHTER…

the secret weapon…

savage as Mount Kilimanjaro…

FRIEND…

breathtaking

scintillating Swagnificence..

SISTER…

vast as the continent of Africa…

magical…

So glad

I’m a BLACK GIRL

PERIOD.
