ONLY A BLACK WOMAN

Can take a week of left over scraps and make a gourmet meal
Can cuss a man out, then make love to him that night and make him feel like a king.
Can wear a burgundy french roll, 3 inch heels and a split up her thigh to work and make it look professional

ONLY A BLACK WOMAN

Can wear the hell out of spandex
Can raise a doctor, a world class athlete and an A+ student in an environment deemed by society as dysfunctional, broken underprivileged And disenfranchised.
Can heat a whole house in the winter without help from the gas company.
Can go from the boardroom to the block and “keep it real” in both places.
Can slap the taste out of your mouth.

ONLY A BLACK WOMAN

Can put a Black man and his non-Black date on pins and needles just by walking into the room.
Can live below poverty level and yet set fashion trends
Can fight two struggles everyday and make it look easy
Can make a child happy on Christmas day even if he didn’t get a thing
Can be admired and fantasized about by men of other races
Can be 75 years old and look 45.

ONLY A BLACK WOMAN

Can make other women want to pay plastic surgeons top $$$ for physical features she was already born with.

ONLY A BLACK WOMAN can be the mother of civilization.

  1. There are a lot of strong women out there who have pushed hard to feed families and can shrivel a big 6 foot man down with just a pissed off side eyed look.

    Never underestimate the power of the ovaries!

  2. Great poem, so beautiful.. I like this one as well

    THE BLACK WOMAN

    From the sands of EGYPT you rose
    Coffee and carmel coated
    From your head to your toes
    Made of mud with perfect curvatures
    No need for clothes
    Naturally strong hair
    Full lips and nose

    The CREATOR made you for a reason
    And you were made FIRST
    As a guardian of this planet
    To watch over the Universe
    To be in touch with nature
    To, at times, exercise your wrath
    Lying your head in Ethiopia
    While in the Nile, taking a bath

    It is you and only your power
    Plus strength alone
    That can bring order to this planet
    And make a many atone

    So stand up BLACK WOMAN
    Shake the shackles from your mind
    Wash the process from your hair
    For, that’s not what makes you fine
    You need not powder your face
    Nor place fake nails upon your hands
    There’s no need to dress in skimpy outfits
    For, that pleases not , the TRUE BLACK MAN

    GET YOUR MIND TOGETHER
    STAND TALL, FIERCE AND PROUD
    REBUKE THE COLONIZER AND HIS WAYS
    LIFT YOUR HEAD UP TO THE CLOUDS

    Dance those dances, chant those chants
    Let your eyes fill with that gleam
    Bring justice to your Ancestors souls
    Who fought so hard against the so-called “AMERICAN DREAM”
    And together me and you, side by side
    Shall put an end to all the chaos and start winning
    By re-aligning ourselves with nature and the animals
    Just as we were in the very beginning…
