Seen too much



As black girls they train you to be faster, smarter, more ambitious... than they do the boys.

Because they know as women, there will be few men to protect you.

Their attempt to save you from the disappointment that awaits.

Been sold a dream that never belonged to you.

Know too much,
seen too much,
learned too much.

Now you're worth more than this world is willing to attribute to you. Worth more than this market will sustain.

Ahead of your time—you are. But.

Know too much,
seen too much,
learned too much.

Awakening to the heartache that a woman's life is to be of sacrifice.

Knowing is bliss.

Except for when knowing means you pine for a worldly love that was never designed with you in mind.

Can't expect too much,
know too much,
seen too much.
