Blackwoman

Blackwoman
my Grandmother
my father’s Mother-Auntie-Mother
my father’s Sisters
my Aunties
my Cousins
my beautiful Black Sister-Cousins
my pregnant at 13-14-15 Sister-Cousins

placed in
forced into
brought down-not-up-in white
white-honest-Christian homes-not-homes

taken from

separate from

apart from

their
Blackwoman-Mothers
and fathers-sons-of-Blackwomen

by those-who-would-try-to-wring-our-colour
away
out of our skin
but never

Heart-Mind-Being

my skin-pale-skin
is just the vessel
in which travels
this heart and soul

is Blackwoman
