A Song for One Old Womxn

When my time in this body is finished
Let me be remembered as
Black and Womxn of my own choosing
Angry
Defiant
Joyful
Triumphant
Let them forget what I endured
Exhault in what I refused to accept
Dance in what I chose to resist
Let me die not as Queen
I will leave the room as Warrior
My blades shining and sharp for the next generations
