Why Cant You Win?
Little Black Girl, why do you feel like you can’t win?
Was it your mommy who told you that you were no intelligent enough to win?
Was it your father’s indifference about soending time with you?
Was it your pretended to be your friend just to play with your toys?
Was it the teacher who was to impatient to help you understand the math equations so you could pass the test?
Was It Your First Love?
Was it your first love who only held your hand when no one was looking because he only want to give you attention to have access to your body?
Was it the employer at work who berates you in front of your colleagues even though you work harder than the rest?
Justification for divesting from life is abundant for you, but will it serve a purpose that benefits you in the end?
Can I Love On You?
Can I say that I love you since your Momma didn’t say it?
Can I tell you that i will protect you since your Father didn’t do it?
Can I say that I care about you since your Boyfriend never meant it?
Can I say that you have my loyalty since your Friends have never been it?
I need you to come play with me
Let’s dance and dream again.
Let’s create our reality like we did with mud pies and tea parties and catching fireflies…
