The true essence of a woman
has never truly been understood
From the Spanish demolishing our cultures
to the way that they are viewed and treated in the hood.
I don't like the use of the word *****
Whether you're rich or poor
upper or middle class
or a ******* lying in a ***** ditch
In our indigenous tribal times
women were respected, revered and held in a high regard
the damage from a European psychology
has pierced our mindsets and left men and society deeply scarred
Try to keep you dumb, barefoot, and pregnant in the kitchen wishing,
while he is out there acting a fool
trying to be a player straight fishing
I'm talking about a species that not only can bear a life
but a being that can hold a job
help with homework, cook, and be a **** wife
Or maybe baby daddy was never really there
or maybe he's stuck in the judicial system
in a cell staring at the wall with a blank stare
Single strong mama doing it all by her self
playing the mother and father
being the comforter and still having to pull out the belt
Tu-pacs dear mama was real and said it the best
until you've grown up with a single mother
you're probably tripping like the rest
I love you, respect you
and truly understand your pain
don't trip mami, I see you and all that work
that you have put in is not in vain
Keep grinding and working hard
continue to do all that you can
I feel you're and got your back
I'm your number one fan
And if your man doesn't appreciate you
and treat you like the Queen that you are
My advice, ditch the punk, be on your own
or find a king that treats you like a true superstar.
Her lips can create poems,
Her mind creates another world.
Her hands create changes in anything
Her heart can create a love that can drown you whole.
Her eyes create a better perspective,
and her mere being creates a home.
Yet you only wanted what's between her legs,
and couldn't stand what it can create.
A poem for single (abandoned) moms
