30 Days Of Jaye: Always En Pointe Black Girl


she has been the chic,

the sturdy,

the fresh, 

and fly one–

trendsetting and sunsets,

as bold as full moons.

Never stopping to check

for whom is not checking

for her.

In this body, walking

through this world as 

magic, melanin, and millenniums

the rocks cry out for us,

for me, for us, and the we

hidden in the magic 

of our wombs.

It is the grace of our feet

and the rhythm in our sway

which carry us towards destiny

and the legacy meant for us.



Believing in us and each other.
