The Black Woman

Earth has been a victim of man for millenniums

-She reminds me of a black woman

1. Black is a divided colour;

Black women are fighting the world for their freedom whilst black men fight them for wanting to free themselves from them.

2. A mother will undress in the presence of her daughter but not her son.

Both are her children, Society condones men not being responsible for their actions.

3. Every flower needs the sun to bloom…

My dear, you will not hide.

You will not grow under the shadows of man!

4. A black woman’s love enters and leaves through the same door

You will open it for her in both scenarios.

.

I am a black woman,

My thighs do not applaud obedient love.
