where do you put them?
all those lies that you are fed about your worth?
the questions about why you are here,
your value and your purpose?
where do you put the belief that you are anything less than golden?

how do you stand tall
under the burden of being
black
female
young?

why do you rise from bed
when everything is trying to
convince you to stay put
under the covers
afraid
and
alone?

who pushes you forward
when everyone
everything seems to
conspire to hold you back?

i hope the answer is you.
