Black Woman

Recommended Posts


This poem kind of reminds me of Maya Angelou's "Phenomenal Woman". For all the butiful black sistahs..enjoy!


The fullness of my lips

Curvature of my hips

Straight down my back

then dip

That pretty brown round

Going down, down

I am a black woman

The texture of my hair

Do I dare go there?

Relaxed or naturally kinky

I can't please society

Short, long or braided

Still I am hated

I am a black woman

The manner in which I speak

Out spoken, never meek

Articulate slang

How I do my thang

Label it Ebonics

yet EVERYONE is on it

I am a black woman

My lover my friend

Stick by me till the end

Break offs hella propa

sho nuff a show stoppa

My struggle you can back

For you are my man black

I am a black woman
