    I want,
    I to be able to walk down the street without people assuming i was layed up in sex covered sheets,
    Just because i am young and black,
    Doesn't mean i fall for every wack line thrown in my face
    I Want,
    To be trusted and not crusted with other's false praises and animosity
    To be able to walk down street with heels on my feet and a switch in my hips ,
    Gloss on my lips body full of dips without getting honked at or hit on by lames who don't even try to get decent grades in school,
    who think that it's cool to sit around and play pool while they skip class,
    and smoke grass getting high while their parents are out working nine-to -fives,
    just so they can get by not knowing their teenage son and his ignorant friends are getting blazed in a daze and being ignorant,
    I want,
    To be able to be accepted as a five foot three chocolate beauty and not be hated on for being born black,
    But not just black but loud and proud and on the prowl looking for whatever challenges me and keeps me on my feet,
    I want,
    to be able to be me and be free and to be loved not by all but by one true friend or lover,
    I want,
    to live life and succeed and just plain be me.

    Decency and self-respect are yours to insist upon and Command. I admire the self-worth you are displaying. Sister, don't ask... demand that they respect you.

    Nothing wrong with that, wanting to be respected for who you are, truly, not what people assume that you are. I really like this flow, so full of pride and truth. Keep those flows coming, I'll keep reading for sure.
