HEY, WELCOME TO MY BLOG! HERE YOU'LL FIND A VARIETY OF POEMS & ENTRIES ALL CIRCLING AROUND THE EXPERIENCE & TRAUMA WOMEN OF COLOR ARE FACING DUE TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & SEXUAL ASSAULT
This isn’t your average love affair
I’m not in love with just one,
But the majority,
If not all.
The ones who are locked away
Like a caged bird,
Only to be singing till their death,
Yearning to be free.
A crime they did not commit,
But someone’s gotta pay, right?
Someone’s gotta be held accountable
For the next “man”, right?
The man who looks at MY MAN
As 1/3 of a man.
The man who killed MY HUSBAND
on that corner..
When all he wanted was to make ends meet.
Or the men who RAPED MY FORESISTERS
In front of THEIR MEN!
Then murdered these same men
In front of them.
Only for them to be left broken.
See, this love affair has left me broken!
Because we’re losing our men
To this propaganda that’s used to
Dehumanize us and...
Pin us as the ultimate threat to society
When it’s them!!!
Them who are the real threat!
They have left us so broken
When all we want is equality and justice
But especially our men.
