Black and White

Black and White

There was once a little girl

Who’s insecurities she never shared with the world

Who’s vulnerability she saw as a flaw

She only remained true to herself behind a castle wall

Confused in her thoughts

Unsure of her emotions

This little girl bloomed into a lotus flower

Not realizing her unique type of power

A sun during the day

A star during the night

She tells her story in black and white

There was once a young lady

Who’s insecurities she always blamed on others

Who’s vulnerability she shared with unworthy lovers

Ashamed of her skeletons

Embarrassed by her actions

It puzzled her whenever she set the wrong attractions

A follower during the day

A rebel during the night

She tells her story in black and white

I was once that little girl

I was once that young lady

But I am now this young woman

I’ve gone from being the sun during the day

To a star during the night

To the full moon that reveals itself in the blue skies

And lights up dark paths to help with sight

I still remain a bloomed lotus flower

But I finally get it

My unique type of power

I love easy

I fall hard

I am honest

I am loyal

I am supportive

I am a fighter

I am a cryer

But one thing I most certainly am not…is a liar

There was once a little girl

There was once a young lady

There’s now this young woman

Who’s moon shines bright

To let others know it’s going to be alright

This is who I am

Whether you see me in black or white
