To think,

I was going to be a lawyer,

An actress,

A teacher and an activist,

I was going to be an

Entrepreneur

A game changer

I was going to be the

First African American woman

Of something

I was going to be

IT

And then…

Only then

Would I be

A Writer

To think

I was going to perpetuate

The quintessential evidence

Of Neocolonialism

And from there

Within the pulse of the

Neocolonial state

Somehow,

Mythically dismantle it

Ha!

To think,

Abe Lincoln was once my hero
