I am far stronger than most
and don’t subscribe to that bullshit
Helen Reddy song of being
‘Womens Rights’ only pertains to white women.
I am not…
I own a home
you would give anything to own.
My home comes from my uneducated Caribbean parents
who believed in their self-worth,
believed in raising their children
in a place where a landlord could not evict them.
I don’t need to preach about who I am and.
justify my right to breathe the same air as you do.
Just stay the fuck out of my way
keep your pity party to yourselves and…
LET ME BE!
I am a woman of colour
respect or leave from my sight.
