Best Poem of Angela Davis

For Every Woman

This is for every woman
that cries herself to sleep
that lies alone in bed at night
that stays awake, unable to sleep

This is for every woman
that is scared of being hurt again
that has been left behind, heartbroken
that needs to be given something to believe in

This is for every woman
that needs to feel wanted
that wants to feel desirable
that feels like no one even cares

This is for every woman
that has loved another freely
that shows how much she cares
that accepts others for who they are

You are beautiful.
Everything will...

Watch Me

The sky has lost its color; it looks dull and gray.
The world has lost its charm, and I wish it would go away.
I want to stay here inside myself, hidden in my pain.
The hopes I’ve been clinging to no longer remain.
I’ve cried out almost daily, told you how I feel.
You disregard my pleas; you don’t think I am for real.
You think I will just lay here accepting what you do,
Like a dog cowering at its master’s feet, begging for mercy.
This game grows ever so tired; we’ve been down this road

[Hata Bildir]
