Strong. Independent. Black. Woman. Part II

A Poem.

Just the opposite of Part I, which you should read HERE.

23 and already

I’m tired

So so tired

Black women,

My sistas,

.

Do you ever get tired?

Tired

Of being a

Strong. Independent. Black. Woman.

.

Something I once wore proudly

My badge of honor

My proof that I’m not a little girl

I’m a Grown. Ass. Woman

And I can do bad all by myself

.

But now?

.

I’m ready for someone to snatch me

Cuff me

Wife me up

Make me a trophy wife, a stay at home wife

Because I’ve exhausted myself

Working nonstop

Just to be the best

Above all the rest

I need to rest

.

Thought I didn’t need a man

That I could do it all

Have it all

Without a man

But I want my man

And I want him now

.

Cuz I’m scared

Scared I’m running out of time

To be some mans someone

And for him to be mine

.

I hate asking for help

Hate looking for support

But maybe a husband would bring

Great comfort

.

Someone I could wait at home for

And I could put in more effort to make an

“Us” work

Tired of Temporary

I want a lifetime

I want to settle

.down

…down

…..down

Rather than riding solo dolo

Cuz ya girls ready to trade this

Strong. Independent. Lifestyle

For Feminine. Subtle. Submission.
