black women are goddesses
black women are queens
black women were the first
to birth human beings.
she’s the life giver. the nurturer.
the feminine power behind all great things.
she gives birth to all black men,
so we all got black women’s genes.
her dna goes way back. hundreds of thousands
of years before adam and eve.
and out of her came hundreds of thousands
of the earths most intelligent beings.
she is powerful beyond measure
and has the potential to create anything.
with her smile alone, she can inspire
a thug to become a king.
she not only inspires greatness,
she is the personification of it.
who else you know can work a 9-5,
run a side business, go to school, and
still raise her own children and they cousins?
she does so much for others,
that she often neglects herself.
if her love was a currency,
she’d own all this nation’s wealth.
ain’t no woman like a sistah,
she got that sacred vibration.
from her spirit to her melanin
down to her presence and conversation.
she got that black girl magic.
when you meet her, you gotta have it.
i’m talkin bout her love and companionship,
not just her body for you to smash it.
though her lovin is amazing
the soul beneath her flesh is even better.
hot enuff the make the coolest brothas
break down and have to sweat her.
but she’s more than a mate
she’s also a loyal friend.
the type to speak life into your soul
just cuz she wanna see you win.
that’s why to know her is to love her,
whether you her husband, friend, son or brother.
cuz what she brings to the table
can’t be delivered by another.
black women are the best thing
that has ever happened to the planet.
she’s so necessary to our survival
that we often take her for granted.
what would we do without our
sistahs, mothers and wives?
just the thought of having to,
should brings tears to our eyes.
i love you black women.
and i hope those in your circle loves you too.
i don’t celebrate american holidays,
but i make an exception just for you.
happy mother’s day black women,
may your day be filled with affirmations.
replenishing you of all the love you give
to so many generations.
this poem inspired by my mom, grandma and wife,
the most important black woman in my life.
sometimes i wish i could go back in time
to experience yall’s love twice.
