Stay Strong – Ch#32 (Just one thing)
Observe, in the mirror, her refection,
A woman … black … moreover … awarded.
Ignoring, the barbed jibes, of rejection,
Not rising, to assumptions, afforded.
“Conservatory” arts well, rewarded
This pretender, for her top position.
Despite distress, outside her volition,
When thought, as a precious minority,
Duck, not the hard fight, she must transition,
Stay strong. Hard work is the priority.

Over the 62 days, in July and August, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows? Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag
