Who Am I?


I am a black woman who is striving to succeed
I wonder why I was created
I hear my emotions
I see the sound of my fear
I want to have unmovable courage
I am a black woman who is striving to succeed

I pretend that justice is real
I feel the words of my poem
I touch the air that I breathe
I worry bout this world that I live in
I cry when it rains
I am a black woman who is striving to succeed

I understand that GOD is real
I say what goes around comes around
I dream of being a secure woman
I try to be nice to rude people
I hope that different cultures can truly love each other
I am a black woman who is striving to succeed

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
