Heart of Fury

Don’t mistake my anger for shame 
This coily curl crown shines with pride 
in my hips, lips, and drip
brainwash me to believe I am less than...
it’s you who's sick...not me
How does it feel?
To know that your self worth comes from my degradation
To know that when I straighten the spine you tried to bend it curves yours.
What happens to your identity when the foundation of indignity crumbles? 
Do you become small?
Are you now the thing you hate?
The thing you think I am.
Weak. 
Now you see.
I am not.
The whiteness of your skin only serves to blacken your heart 
The blackness of mine shines like the brightest star in the sky 
Full of beautiful fiery fury
Ready to burn down a house built on a graveyard 
Welcome to our new world
Born from the ashes of your pyre 
Like a phoenix rising out of the abyss
Here
Your silence is deafening 
And my anger is strength Don’t mistake my anger for shame 
This coily curl crown shines with pride 
 in my hips, lips, and drip
brainwash me to believe I am less than...
it’s you who's sick...not me
How does it feel?
To know that your self worth comes from my degradation
To know that when I straighten the spine you tried to bend it curves yours.
What happens to your identity when the foundation of indignity crumbles? 
Do you become small?
Are you now the thing you hate?
The thing you think I am.
Weak. 
Now you see.
I am not.
The whiteness of your skin only serves to blacken your heart 
The blackness of mine shines like the brightest star in the sky 
Full of beautiful fiery fury
Ready to burn down a house built on a graveyard 
Welcome to our new world
Born from the ashes of your pyre 
Like a phoenix rising out of the abyss
Here
Your silence is deafening 
And my anger is strength
