Been beaten, kicked, and stepped
Upon
Been raped, cut, and lied
Upon
Yet still I smile and go
About
With strength and vigor not a
Pout
I don't feel sorry for
Myself
Don't place the blame on someone
Else
Take the punishment at the
Time
With pride and stubborness hard to
Find
I know my kids will be proud of
Me
They'll look at me and they will see
A STRONG BLACK WOMAN

*in no way is this to be perceived as an exalting poem. Everyone has had their pain and I just wanted to share my triumph*
