Black Woman/Overly Critiqued


Series/Black Woman

Topic: Overly Critiqued


Brown eyes

Pink lips

Chubby legs

Big butt

Smart girl, but don’t ask too many questions.

Too smart, you sound like you’re white.

Perm your hair, let it grow.

Dress like them, speak like them, don’t act like - me.

Push your emotions down,

Smile more, you look mean.

Don’t ask questions.

You sound angry.

I’m not angry.

Is it really me?

Don’t let it bother you.

But it does bother me.

Change my walk, change my talk, change my - me.

Still not good enough.

Tired.

Stressed out.

Still don’t understand.

I’m done.

I can validate myself.

High blood pressure.

Too late.
