Steppin' (Dedicated to Ladybug)
You're walking now!
I watched as you took two steps with your bowed legs, chubby pigeoned toes and big bright eyes. "What is this feeling?"
You took two steps and fell to the ground, I picked you up and you took more steps, then off running you went.
This will be your life growing up as a beautiful brown girl. You will take steps forward and the world will try to knock you back down, get back up.
I won't always be there to pick you up, so keep walking strong and with your head held high.
I love you.
