If I were Wise…

If I were Wise…

I would say that today is simply the best day of my life without giving any thought to what could happen.

If I were Wise…

I would see myself with the eyes of God and swell with pride when I look upon every scar and every bruise; every broken tooth and perfect imperfection because they are now intricate parts of my story.

If I were Wise…

I would rejoice in having done wrong because I took from her the knowledge of how to do right.

If I were Wise…

I would feel every emotion without regret.

If I were Wise…

I would spend less time afraid of being hurt and spend more time lost in love.

If I were Wise…

I would hug a little tighter and love my family a little deeper.

If I were Wise…

I would realize that not everyone is my friend and not everyone is going to be kind.

If I were Wise…

I would dust my shoulders off and keep my head up in spite of.

If I were Wise…

I would tell every little black girl that I come into contact with that she is so much more than reality television and body parts. (She probably doesn’t hear it enough)

If I were Wise…

I would tell every little black boy that there’s a man living inside of him that can only survive if he educates himself, believes in himself, honors himself and uplifts himself. (Society probably won’t do that)

If I were Wise…

I would tell every human being that I come into contact with to love God, and then receive love from God so they know how to love the next person.

If I were Wise… I would tell that same thing to myself.
