know this

i am worth as much as

the brothers and

sisters before me

were recognized for.

i am worth as much as

the tallest among saplings

and if i fall

you will not hear me

hit the ground

but you will hear and feel

my roots growing through

the soil beneath your feet

i am worth as much as

the susan and becky

who applied to my

position and then grew

angry because the black

girl was more qualified

than anyone else.

i am living out my fantasy

one and for all

 

i am back on my feet

and ready to begin again.
