Felt myself floudering
So I learned to swim
Swam laps around the misogyny
Trying to sink its hooks in me
Nah holmes, I’m too great, no mystery to solve
I practice what I preach.
Set goals, bout to win this relay,
Break through barriers that try to separate me further from self.
Beloved don’t come seeking
What doesn’t exsist
You wouldn’t want to disappoint yourself.
Forgiveness lives on the tip of my tongue
But with all that they’ve done to awaken the warrior in me
Pain is an unwanted neccesary friend
That I’m no longer afraid to unleash.
No. you’ll never see her coming.
Let peace rain down,
Put some respect on its name
Less you finna get got,
Baby I’m too hot to get off the block.
Been itchin to play
Trigger happy mami
With that trigger happy nani
