Seven is magic
Seven reminds me of the time that has passed
Since the very first day you got here.
Seven has taught me to love
Beyond the expansion of my heart
Seven has taught me to ache
For the moments when we’re apart.
Seven reminds me of my strength
As I pour and help build you your own
Seven reminds me of the child within
That sometimes wishes she’d never grown.
Seven has made me a fighter
Taking on the world in all its spaces
In order to give you the universe
Where Black girl magic fills all the places.
Seven has seen me swallow my pride
And make choices for someone other than me
I hope you will learn from my mistakes
And that the truth you’ll clearly see.
Seven is gratitude personified
Seven is loving you.
