I won't ask for forgiveness for embracing my Blackness. I will not put it on the shelf for you to gaze upon as a novelty

Deep within my Melanin is grace beyond measure. My blackness, used against me for so long that the beatings nearly broke me

I won't apologize for owning my femininity 
I am Mother Earth, as I was created by the Creator to bring forth life anew

My hands, loving and nurturing, cradling hearts that have been broken
My smile, the sun, replenishing each seed in a cold and dark world

I will not apologize for my spirituality
I am a Believer
I am a Lover
I be the Light, as His Light shines from within

Made perfect by His Love
Sinner, yet righteous through He who created this...

Born of spirit
Reborn by the Spirit

I am a trilogy
My story three fold
I am a deity
Made in the image of The Trinity

Holy Spirit 
Alive within me for the world to see

I will not beg your pardon for loving all of humanity. I will love as God loves me
Spreading Peace, Love and Light, Divinity Alive in threes
