and its not an easy feat.
my magic is in my walk, my speech
it even seeps through my pores whenever I breath
black girl magic is a combination of all that makes me. me
passionate, happy, naive
I am still finding it
allowing myself to possess
in all their glory
my magic is in my smile
the way my curves hug and squeeze
how my lashes rise and full with every blink.
there’s magic in my words
with the parting of my lips
and confidence of my voice
the magic is found in being comfortable in my melanin
honoring the body
my soul is blessed to abide in
each mark stretched across my skin
is a declaration of beauty.
loving my flaws, accepting them
letting the world become better
to have me in it
my magic is all my own
it resonates with other beautiful black women
who know its power
and embrace its truth
pieces of my magic are sprinkled
on days, dates and dominates any place.
it follows me
wherever my journey leads
