"I Am A QUEEN"
BY: Makissa Lewis
I realized I am not a pawn or knight
I am a QUEEN willing and able to fight
For what I love with all that is in me
Success is the only outcome, the only possibility
For as a QUEEN, I know sometimes it is best to watch and learn
Rather than move in haste and get burned
I know as a QUEEN I cannot demand one to be a strong KING
Or force said individual to buy me the coveted diamond ring
For as QUEEN I must fight not for the chance to wed
I must fight to "BE"
I am a QUEEN in words and deeds
Fighting for the ones I love - until I have no more blood to bleed
I am a QUEEN!
