Because of a Black Woman

Inspired by the insanity to Illuminate through the Illusion…

Because of a black woman…I got to taste the bitterness of ignorance and the sweetness of breath

Because of a black woman…nights don’t drown me, and my days don’t seem like an endless drift

Because of a black woman…I know the difference between the rage of reckless fear, and the silence of caution

Because of a black woman… I know that the sweetness of her rivers shouldn’t blind me to the emptiness of her shallow streams…

Because of a black woman…I am free to think, to create, to envision, to be…

Because of a black woman…I know the difference between the thoughts of the wise and the banter of the bitter

Because of a black woman…I know the pressure of the poke should not be as important as the rhythm of the words spoke

Because of a black woman…I can sense the anger of your words, and the confusion of the world in your heart…

Because of a black woman…I am Arm Leg Leg Arm Head, Guidance Order Direction, Justice Authority
