Hey Black girl, heyyyyyy

Hey Black girl, heyyyyyy

Hey Black girl, heyyyy

As you move around today

Don't give way

Or pivot

Or make yourself small.

Don't apologize

Or avert your eyes.

You can if you wanna.

But you don't gotta.


Go 'head now take up space.


Our mothers,

Our sisters,

Our Aunts,

And sistah-friends,

They are the wind on our backs;

The nudge on our shoulders.


Lean on back.

Then move on forward.

You know you can do it.

You deserve to be here.


Yesterday is over.

Today is your destiny.

No need to doubt.


You were right.

You are right.

You will be right.

All right?

All right.
