Sheba was fearless and black with the beauty of the midnight sky.
I was shy and brown.
We spent endless recesses on the swings –
Arms thrown open
Eyes wide shut
And faces bright with little girl dreams.
I would always laugh aloud and pump my legs like a body pocessed
because to me, it always felt
Sheba is fearless and black with beauty of the midnight sky.
I am shy and brown.
Sheba has left me now,
soaring beyond even our wildest dreams.
I remain here still,
too afraid to let my feet leave the ground.
