renewed / not new – a Brown Girls Privilege

here is some of my privilege.

I believe they were thinking of me

wearing myrrh and adorned in silver

and that is not selfish

we share the same sun

– the kiss on our skin

we share a love of puzzles

– arrangements of letters

we turn into poems – plays – books – speeches

and laughs.

One thought on “renewed / not new – a Brown Girls Privilege”

  1. I wish it was that simple. Try being a black mother or a black educator explaining to the wonderful, beautiful black children and women in my life that they are ‘enough’.
