Poetry

Momma

I want my babies to know 

When they choose to fly 
Ima be there if ever they happen to fall 

And if they want to defy the patriarchal structure 
And go against the concentration gradient 
Defining what it truly means to fly themselves 
Without pinning their heights to unfair standards
In a biased system 
Made to benefit a certain class/race 

So basically 
If they choose to fly backwards 
Or not at all

Ima still be there. 
Pride in toe.
