Haiku (or hokku)

A Japanese verse form most often composed, in English versions, of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image, or a pair of images, meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time.

So I learned after the fact that mine aren't technically right, buuuuut it was still fun, and I like what I came up with anyway. Hope you enjoy them!

The Unapologetic Age of Women

 
daysha veronica
 

It is in a world that is filled with fiercely unapologetic queens. 

Queens that never question their worth,
and that are always holding their heads up unapologetically high.
Queens that always know how to keep it moving,
and know what things and people are worth their time.

When I think about the future that I want to live in...

I see a world that is filled with fiercely unapologetic queens.
Queens that are never afraid to speak their minds;
that slay at their hustle, and stay on their grind.
Queens that make choices for them, and by them,
and that are making money moves wit the quickness;
handling they business and they haters with nothing 
but unapologetic fierceness.

When I think about the future that I want to live in...

I see a world that is filled with nothing but fiercely unapologetic queens.
Queens that are living up to their fullest potential, and then some.
Queens that are shinin' and thrivin' and strivin' to be their best selves.
Queens that are living their lives on their own terms,
free of any second-guesses or self-doubts.

When I think about the future that I want to live in...

We are women that are bosses, not bossy.
Single or taken, but always care-free.
And leaving behind us the days that started with "what will I do"
and leaning into the days that start with "who will I be."
