Young Black Woman, By Anonymous

Black Princess,
You are a young woman now
Yes .. you will have new difficult responsibilities
And it will feel as though the weight of the milky way is crushing you,
This means you are aging, The grandest key in life is to grow
As you age, so you can have the word of a grandmother,
Your growth depends on you. Live the life that is gently spoken to you,
The life that ignites your soul. Have the confidence you admire,
Stand on a pedestal that you created and not one given to you,
This way when you fall you know exactly how to thrive again.
Express yourself anyway imaginable, be bold, be opinionated,
Love yourself – I promise you it is the best feeling in the world.
While living this life of yours do not forget to:
Smile til’ it hurts
Laugh indefinitely
Live with passion
Share your ideas
Take it slow….. Or fast – it’s always at your pace
And value your intuition
No Matter What have fun
YOU ARE A BLACK PRINCESS AND ONLY YOU CAN TAKE THAT FROM YOURSELF
