Spiritual Guidance

by LykeButta

Ancestors watch over me
in my pursuit 

of  excellence 

and precision.
Just as our foremothers,
and the mothers before them
steady shaky ground.
Loving spiritual guidance
My footsteps being led
by black women 

who said mediocrity
is never good enough,
that we are made of 

stronger stuff,
and no less than my best
will ever be accepted.
Standing strong
in roots of my
resilient family tree
nurtured by the strength
and determination 

of every black African
woman before me… 

I will succeed
