    Miss – Understood

    Miss – Understood
    Do I confuse you by the way I look?
    Not intelligent enough to write a book?
    Taught by the greatest schools of thought
    Graduated the best university
    Summa cum laude, fought adversity
    Diligent, still paid less than the rest
    Overachiever, top of the class, the best
    I hope I don’t offend you, my intentions are good
    If so, Pardon me, I just want to be understood
    Condescending, offending
    Patronizing, is agonizing
    On paper – perfect, in person, not who you want me to be
    I want to be accepted, don’t treat me any differently
    Don’t want to be Miss-Understood
    Because I’m young, black, educated, doing good
    Suburbanite, but raised in the hood
Working...
