This is the first Poem I've ever written. I wrote it on my 28th birthday while reflecting on past failed relationships and realizing I had failed before I ever began.


The Search

My brothers......Look... there she is, the very essence of a Strong Black Woman

Where....Is she the one with the long silky hair.....
No my brother..... she is not Samson....... her strength is not in her hair........

Where ...... Is she the one with the big Ass
No my brother...... she is not a mule....... she should never be referred to as just an Ass...........

Where........ Is she the one with the big breasts...............
No my brother......... she is not a chicken her breasts are not her best feature........

Brothers........ Iím disappointed.......you claim to be looking for a Strong Black Woman

Yet you have not taken the time to learn how to find what you are looking for........

How can you expect to find a Strong Black Woman...........
If you have not first become a Strong Black Man............

You see my brothers........ only a Strong Black Man deserves a Strong Black Woman......

And therefore only a Strong Black Man can see a Strong Black Woman...........

Its not that they arenít there to be found
Its not that they donít want to be found
Its that you donít know what to look for or where to find it

To find a strong black woman you must look deep
past the superficial exterior that so many weak minded individuals put their faith in
you must look deep into her soul

However, If you have not looked deep into your own soul to discover your true essence
how can you look deep into the soul of another

Only when you have learned to look deep within yourself
will you have the understanding and ability necessary to search and find what you desire in others.
