    i am so much more than what i wear,
    more than my smile or my twisted hair....
    i am so much more than the dna ingrained in me...
    more than religion or the name that was given to me..
    i
    am
    so
    much
    more.

    i am so much more than the popular stereotypes
    I defy all of the generational stigma and hype
    For I am an eternal soul with beginning or end
    No age or time to which my spirit must confine or bend
    i
    am
    so
    much
    more.

    i am so much more than what i've been showing
    But I am evolving because of your mind knowing
    you knew i was full of it..and i knew i was full of it..full of fear....
    to scared to step out the box and endure the cross i must bear...
    i
    am
    so
    much
    more.

    i am so much than i been choosing to exhibit
    but today I take away all that which prohibits
    and willingly choosing to submit to none but one
    My life HIS way from here on out is way it shall be done
    i
    am
    so
    much
    more.

    i am so much more than more
    more than the dark sky that hangs
    like a condemned victim
    over my house some nights
    while i sleep in peace
    His breath breathing love
    into my nostrils teaching me
    to inhale love into myself

    i am so much more than ink
    flowing across a blank page
    gathering...pooling and soft
    in the eyes of a reader's mind
    for if you glance closer
    you will always catch me falling
    but still plucking stars
    from heaven's foot stool to place in my heart
    so that later when i pray i can
    offer Him back some of the beauty
    He instilled in me

    i am so much more than hair and flesh
    i am a black beautiful woman
    formed and loved by God.

    holding your hand sis
    for
    WE
    are
    so
    much
    more

    Yes!

    I Am So Much More is the line that stuck with me. Empowerment is what I felt reading this piece. A good read.
