Short Stories

She Knows Who She Is


Single, 

Introverted,

Black,

Curly hair that defied gravity,

Sunkissed chocolatey skin,

Mile long legs,

Dangerous curves,

Honey sweet lips,

Soft, round breasts,

Brown, sultry, seductive eyes,

Voice of a Goddess,

Intellecutally inclined.

She is a Black woman.

She loved herself, now,

But it wasn’t always that simple.

Abused, 

hurt, 

promiscuous,

Self conscious, 

Doubtful,

Lustful,

Selfish,

Unloving,

Self destructive,

Standoffish,

Antisocial,

Bitter,

Lonely.

She has many scars

But they remind her of 

Where she came from,

And not to be stuck

In the past. 

But now,

She’s still not perfect,

But she knows who she is,

She is a Black woman.

Capable and worthy of love,

Passion,

Companionship,

Standards,

Forgiveness,

Reliability,

And everything she

Knows she deserves.

Why?

Because she knows 

Who she is.

Confident,

Faithful,

Trusting,

And able.

She knows who she is.
