Ode to the Cause.. (01.04.2013)

Poison entering my system..

Constant fighting has corrupted my better judgment…

Long days turn to longer nights…

Tension swamping body becomes weaker through this fight…

I asked for this…

brought my body here…

constant struggle shown only though my silken tears…

Love is… passion driven…

Why I’m the only one saying sorry in the end…

but this is my badge of honor…

I earned these stripes..

Pain stricken is my only given right…

This Black WoMan…

I been raised soft spoken, by rough women…
Groomed quiet by life &nasty by interactions..
My depth is limitless..
Though stories hang behind my eyes..
Most of them thick woven lies…
Who am I?? Your guess is as good as mine…
Cause this woman before you has been created by destruction and formulated as nobody’s prize..
Can’t even place proper words on my lips to even form towards you a powerful diss..
Though black runs my blood,  my heart a dirty mist.
But through your eyes I seem so meek and uninspired..
Flames of hell raising passion are driven inside, just not shown out..
