I’m writing this letter to you
Asking for this year to be filled with love
And blessings from the man above.
I’m asking for maturity
And for my rose to open and blossom;
To have strength to walk with confidence.
And to show the world I am promise
I am coming into this new age,
Using another strategy to win this game
Where I allow the inner me to come out
And for some I may not be the same.
Fuckboys must digress.
And only real men hold my attention.
And if he exemplifies the real definition of a man,
Then he won’t mind riding with me in my expansion.
Another step closer to graduation
And having a career, so my parents can relax.
Everything I do is for them.
It’s my gratitude and payback.
And with this positivity,
I need my friends by my side
Helping me grown and sharing growth
Cause we’re all on the same ride;
To go out I this world
And Have my head high. And not be afraid
To take what’s mine
Whether it’s in my fro or my braids.
I gotta set an example for my sisters
That women can conquer all
And no matter what obstacles come thy way
It can never be their downfall.
I end this letter
With a kiss and much love to you,
I hope you bring me SO much more,
At the age of twenty-two!
