Remember Me

Remember me,

A black woman,

Of West Indies descent, 

Remember me,

A black woman,

With billows of coarse kinky hair, 

Remember me,

A black woman,

With the body of an enchantress ,

Remember me,

A black woman,

With wisdom that goes beyond man…

 

Remember me.

A black woman.

You come from me, 

And yet you despise me,

You treat me terribly, 

Even though you like the idea of being me,

And the support I give you…

 

So why don’t you love me,

Are my traits not enough,

Is my support not enough,

Do you remember me?

A Black Woman?
