    As I work through my own insecurities, there is still a part of me that doesn’t believe in my capabilities. I spend a lot of my time dreaming of the person I would like to become one day but I cannot fully be sure if I can make it possible. This poem shows the transition

    It is inevitable to not make mistakes in this life. Everyone holds something that they regret but consistently follows them at some point.

    As a young black woman, I grew up with self-esteem issues, even to the point of self-loathing because of the horrendous things I would hear and see about black women and girls. I never had the chance to embrace the unique qualities of being a black girl such as my brown skin, natural hair, and
