National Poetry Month- Fan Mail

National Poetry Month-Day 3: Write a poem in the form of a fan letter to a celebrity. Now, this could be a celebrity from long ago, and needn’t be an actor or singer (though it could be).


Dearest She, Her, Me

The power you hold cannot be sent asunder by those who wish you would be seen by not heard. Those who refuse to see the determination in your irises as you witness tears in mothers who mourn their children too soon or the sparkle when the sisterhood is celebrated…the fierceness in your stride when you stomp the pavement seeking justice or grace when you walk into your anointing…the timbre in your voice when you school the deliberately ignorant or the admiration when you acknowledge those before you…or the strength in your hands when you mold the way we are represented to the world or the gentleness as you reach back to pull others up to be positioned next to you.

You are the mother earth and goddess of ‪#‎blackgirlmagic‬.

your biggest fan.
