    dotsUpon My Backdots

    Upon my back;
    I carry this sack
    Which history gave to me,
    Within it I try my best to keep
    some speck of dignity.

    The sack is full
    my loads' not light
    Yet my strenght increases
    As I continue my flight.

    Through life and pain,
    Through heartache and rain,
    I fall with my loads
    And get up again.

    I bear & carry children with this load upon my back,
    Overcoming great struggles, while still under attack.

    With oppression still on my heels
    The enemy spins the wheel.
    I play my cards and
    call Satan's bluff,
    though a nasty hand he deals.

    Strong, Black, Beautiful & Brazen;
    I continue to feel..

    ..my roots..

    ..from deep within; fro heart & womb,
    though underestimated & disrespected
    I will not be consumed.

    I extort pride from this burden I bring,
    my ability to absorb & extract
    makes me mother of everything!

    I am God's feminine counterpart;
    I am "Mother Nature"..!
    My blackness is his art!

    This Motherland endurance,
    held by the feminine one within.
    The Queen of all Queens,
    with the bronzed & blackened skin.

    I am she ho God has chosen
    To bring forth the beauty within;
    This earthly realm of wickedness;
    I've endured the gut of its sin.

    Tired feet,
    Calloused hands;

    Worn body & mind;
    And I still stand..

    ..Carrying out grueling, pre-ordained acts;
    Somehow my spirit is still in tact.

    Thought I still carry this heavy sack;
    It's God and Mother Earth who have my back!
