If humanity was to be spun by a potter’s lathe
You would be her or his vision in which their feet worked the pedal while hands worked the clay.
Much like that of the ancient Egytian God Chum.
Every single Black female actor IS indebted to you
Whether it’s stages their call “line” from and sets they come to life on when ACTION is called
Or The Red carpets which they elegantly grace
Or the golden statuettes their hands clutch upon being recognized for their craft.
Without you Queen, would not be.
Little Awkward Black Girls
Whose Grandmothers used to look up to you when they were little girls
Prance successfully in your footsteps
No longer INSECURE.
You are Black Royalty
You are an American icon
One whom the world shall never forget
Now in the Heavens, you are one of it’s very rare HyperGIANT stars
Shining luminously upon all others stars and Earth itself.
Rest well Black Queen of Queens.
