Black Girl in a White World

I brush, pick, twist, curl, braid, and lock my hair…
I switch, bounce, tap, and rock my hips…

My smile may be wide, but my heart is too!
My eyes may be broad, but my mind is too!
I talk loud, because I am passionate!
I walk proud, because I am going somewhere!

My tongue may be quick, but my feet are steady!
My mind may think differently, but my blood is the same!
I fight for my equality…
I go to war for the equality of others…

No, you may not touch my hair…
No, I can’t teach you how to dance…
No, I am not angry…I just don’t respond well to bull s***

I am curvaceous!
I am beautiful!
I am strong!
I love hard!

My smile may be wide, but my heart is too!
My eyes may be broad, but my mind is too!
I talk loud, because I am passionate!
I walk proud, because I am going somewhere!

I brush, pick, twist, curl, braid, and lock my hair…
I switch, bounce, tap, and rock my hips…

Welcome ladies and gentlemen! I am Pinkspen – BA|MSW, Professional Blogger, Feminist, Counselor, and Equality Advocate. I am the Founder of LADYHOOD journey. I created this brand to promote self-love, equal rights, healthy relationships, and health & wellness, and to also challenge social concerns like body shaming, beauty standards, and insecurities. I want women and all my readers to leave my site feeling uplifted, supported, and empowered. I love to spend time with my daughter, going to local bars and restaurants with family & friends, online shopping, photography, sipping Chia Tea or Iced Coffee, sitting on my porch while drinking a glass of wine or dark beer, and listening to music from artists like Alessia Cara, Jhene Aiko, Khalid, Frank Ocean, Coldplay, and Kings of Leon.
