Rant of the Day.

I cannot believe,
How incredibly selfish you are,
Black Man.

I cannot believe,
How incredibly strong you are,
Black Woman.

You wake up,
Think of God, him, and your mother,
(In that order),
You pray,
That his blessed body is protected today,
You soothe him,
When he comes to you bleeding,
From society’s daggers,
You dress his wounds with honey,
You feed him warm milk,
You offer your thighs
As refuge, as comfort,
Yet,
When your back is tired,
And your arms are shaking,
From carrying his pain,
And the rest of the world,
When you search his eyes,
For support,
For gratitude,
For SOMETHING,
For ANYTHING,
He leans away,
He turns his head,
He calls you weak,
Or “way too much”,
He laughs, that laugh,
With the dimple in his chin,
As he spits on your labour,
As he spits on your love,
His maleness saves him,
From caring about your tears,
Black Woman,
You are burning,
You are so angry,
But,
You pray for his peace,
Before you go to sleep.
