For you, who denied love like Judas denied Jesus

I am the disregarded
daughter of Guyana who has never been 
I am a girl 
denouncing the world 
as it is today 
I reclaim my right to be a woman in this world 
I reclaim 
Simultaneously refusing 
to be todayz 
commercialized-music-video-dancin'-strip teaze-booty shakin'-
dick suckin'girlfriend 

Maya, Audre, Harriet & Rosa fought for & bought 
with sweat, blood & tearz 
my freedom 
    My freedom to speak to write to love 
    whom I choose, when I choose, where I choose 
They fought 4 my freedom and I'll be damned if 
I disrespect them my       motherz by
letting/ You 
disrespect/ Me
