D.N.A

I do have loyalty

and royalty

inside my D.N.A

But I am not Kendrick

I am Willie B. Dailey’s  grandaughter

I come from a long line of fighters

and I intend on fighting harder

Not because I’m smarter

but because I have addiction,

prison convictions,

mental institutions,

and prostitution,

……….inside my D.N.A

 

But also have

A black woman’s strength,

A mother that never kept this black hair unkempt,

A father that pushed me to go farther

than my dreams,

An aunt who taught me “life isn’t always what it seems”,

A cousin that makes me laugh until my cheeks ache

All these things I have I in my D.N.A
