Poems

ain’t I a woman too, or is my skin to dark for you?
it’s raining out, are you gonna share your umbrella with me, or are you gonna pretend like you don’t see me?
will you lend me your ear to confide in?
a shoulder to lean on when I’m crying?
or is my skin not quite light enough for your taste?
so because I’m darker than her, means I’m not woman enough?
