The Black Maiden

By Oyeniyi Joshua 17 months ago

For she was black 

Yet she never lacked

A special treatment she received 

And never deceived 

She wanted it all

When already she has the mall

And felt cheated 

Even when it was never created 

She was pained

And wanted more

Roars like lion began to go viral

And like the barking dog

She won't stop being mannish

Swiftly like the burning flames looking for a place in the sky to shelter

She gathered the superfluous in her load of responsibility 

And chained herself to it

Forgetting she is tied

She is bargaining for freedom

By not even walking on the bare floor 

She is wanting to sky.
