Black Woman

BLACK WOMAN
 
Because I'm a black woman
I'm expected to hide my tears and pain
Because I'm a black woman
I toil and suffer even in the rain
 
Because I'm a black woman
A lifetime to wash, scrub and act like a maid
Because I'm a black woman
Twas from his ribs I was made
 
Because I'm a black woman
Quiet, docile and humble
Because I'm a black woman
Still to join in the hustle
 
Because I'm a black woman
His trophy prize I am on the wall
Because I'm a black woman
To him I give my all
 
Because I'm a black woman
My career left unbidden
Because I'm a black woman
All my talents snuffed out and hidden
 
Because I'm a black woman
My beautiful hair forced beneath weaves
Because I'm a black woman
My mind, thoughts and body enclosed in cleaves
 
Because I'm a black woman
To see, to hear then feel in silence
Because I'm a black woman
Whipped- tongue tied to violence
 
Because I'm a black woman
Bent, broken, subdued to his will
Because I'm a black woman
My destiny comes with a seal.
