    Do you take it personally?
    offended you seem
    because my laugh is one of
    velvety richness, that seeps
    from a mother of pear heirloom
    box

    Does my mood upset you?
    because I choose to be
    optimistic and realistic
    instead of your negative
    skeptic

    Why are you letting me
    get the best of you?
    because I choose to hold
    my head high be proud
    and urban like the flower
    I am the finest and rarest
    rose

    You may shoot me with
    your words try to kill me
    with your hate and envy for
    me but I will still be me
    free as the black of night
    no fear or worry insight

    You may even try to cut me
    with those cold piercing eyes
    but like an eagle proud and
    free I will still rise and fly

    Does my beauty upset you?
    because I walk with the sexiness
    of Tina Turner and the regalness
    of well defined aged Eartha Kit
    don’t get mad, “don’t have a fit”

    You might just write me down in
    history as your greatest adversary
    but I will still just be me, A beautiful
    black woman of urban ancestry
