ODE TO APOLOGIES

You who dream bigger than the world view

Who build for businesses that aren't for you 

Through the rain you move 

Carrying the weight of whats professional

Then left out in the cold

To apologize is to

express regret for something that one has done wrong

I wonder 

How we learn to say sorry without word

 How we ask for room to grow and told

Maybe next year

Stay frozen

Just watch 

and wait and wait and wait

Tell them NO

This is your time to unapologize for yourself

To own your time, to be the waves 

To say I am here and I am not alone

With Black women by your side

We sit at our own tables

We are the deepest ocean

Flowing with goals and growth

We crash through the glass ceiling

And see the reflection of everything to come 

This is a Sisterhood

Of firm owners and CEOs

Know we got you

We are the tides 

Help you Rise with the Power you hold

For this is the Storm of a generation

Of Black girls who grew up 

Wide eyed and ready

Who skated on doubts

And called it ice 

Who feel our ancestors river guide 

Their droplets dreams 

Pulsing

And 

Right here

This is for those who only knew survival

Who mopped a way through water 

Touched the bottom of the sea and rose above it

This is for the first time you say 

I’m not sorry
