I Am - Poem by Tabasamu Monologues

Yes I am African,
complete with the thick lips,
endowed with big hips;
I swing them like God intended me to;
Yes I am African,
And No I will not bow out.
Yes I am dark skinned,
complete with the kinky hair,
and the ashy knees,
A brown chocolate godess I am;
It is all I ever want to be,
Yes I am dark skinned
And No i will not step aside.
Yes I am a woman,
complete with the countless shoes,
and the heavens stopping smile,
a "second class" citizen,
in "a man's world";
Yes I am a woman,
And No i will not give in.
Yes I am here,
I, An African Dark Skinned Woman,
Am Here To Stay

    i really enjoyed the lines, Yes I am a woman, complete with the countless shoes, and the heavens stopping smile This part reminded me of my own GF with all of her shoes :)
    I also enjoyed the determination to embody your own personal self, no matter how difficult it may become
    Excellent job! (Report) Reply
