Black Woman by JD Daley

Black Woman

Cry out black woman, cry out

for the pickney you bore

inna this life so feared

Cry out black woman, cry out

for they have spawned a web so steep

Cry out black woman, cry out

for the pain instilled in your life

for you feared death of shame

racism, sexism and pride

Cry out black woman. cry out

for the hungry children on the streets

for the shoes you never wore

for the shame and silence you carried

for the weakness you feel of this world of myths of men

for the agony and disgrace among the human race

that they, threw in your face

Cry out black woman, cry  out

when you feel overwhelmed with sorrow

for a beautiful day comes tomorrow

where the sun takes away the burdens of yester years

elevating yourself

freed with empowerment

where  your independence grow with your smile

and proudest esteems your life

So cry out black woman

there is no shame in it

Cry out for a better land

Cryout!
