Queen

I do not need to

The multitude’s cries garner,

I do not need no

Knight in shining armour,

I do not need to

Ride a horse with my head held high,

I do not need no

Weapons to on the seemingly ‘weak’ pry,

I do not need no

Men to ‘guide’ my thoughts helter,

I do not need no

Men to make me ‘bite’ my tongue skelter,

For the centuries of oppression,

All these decades of discrimination,

Have taught me my place,

And who I have forever been,

And with my thoughts have I come to see,

That I have always been a queen.
