Can I Just Be?



“Those who do not feel pain seldom think that it is felt.”- Dr Samuel Johnson

Can I just be…


a black woman with emotions
a black woman with pride,
a black woman with desires
a black woman without lies,


a black woman with strengths
a black woman just because,
a black woman with goals
a black woman you can love,


a black woman with dignity
a black woman you can stand,
a black woman with her money
a black woman with her man,


a black woman with her children
a black woman at work,
a black woman with a paycheck
a black woman with some real perks,


do I really have to be that ‘angry black woman’? 


cause that truly ain’t me….


Can I just be?
