I am my own person and live my life how I want.
I am not for everyone.
I am not your object. I am not perfect and I do not have to be.
I am powerful, resilient, and beautiful.
I am not your “baby.”
I am black art.
I am not a sex figure.
I am my own voice, no one speaks for me.
I am not your b**ch.
I am not your “black woke queen.”
I am not your fetish.
I am not a toy for you to play with when you get bored
I am not flawless.
I am not yours.
I am a human and I want to be treated like one.
