I Am a Queen

I am a queen, and I dare someone to try to tell me I am not.
I am a sassy, black woman.
And for that, I am a queen.
I don't need anyone to tell me I am for me to know I am.
I don't need a document to prove it.
And for that, I am a queen.
I know my worth.
I respect myself.
I love myself.
And for that, I am a queen.
I can outsmart any man.
I can play the games right along with him.
I know when to argue, and when to let the loser think he won.
I am self-motivated.
And for that, I am a queen.
I do not depend on anyone for anything.
I know what I want out of life.
I follow my own rules.
I do not try to be anyone but myself.
I do not care about anyone's opinions but my own. I do what I want.
I am a queen for who am I and not what others think I should be.
