HEAR ME 


Why is it so hard for black women to compliment other
black women?
Like she wouldn’t give me my props knowing that I
killed it on the stage
Now she side eyeing me when her man take notice
See he was on me like a fan
You know hugs and shaking my hand
Saying “Poetic Goddess your words were beautiful and
deep
Raw yet real forcing a man like me to think”
He turns to his woman asking what she thinks
She gives me a compliment with a complaint
She’s like “umm the concept was good, I guess she’s
ok”

Instead of salute Goddess and going on her way
I had to learn not to take things personal
 Everybody that watches you not watching you
Some watch to criticize
Some watch to listen
Some watch to learn
This particular show I delivered a message
Some of the women were so worried about what I wore
to the show
Already in their mind labeling me a hoe
Missing the message
See her man
Her man

I knew his type oh too well
He was playing 2 sides’ heaven and hell
My poetry was about me
How I was in a relationship with a man who beat on me
He put on this fake persona
Act like he’s a man of honor
Then when you’re in too deep
 He smack the happiness to your feet
I wasn’t trying to take her man
I was trying to give her knowledge
Unveiling what was done to me
She was too worried about being my enemy
Blind to the fact of her man’s true identity
Ignoring how each word I spoke he balls up his fist

This type of experience wasn’t new to me
Years later I’m getting calls to perform her eulogy
So let this be a lesson to you
Don’t let your insecurities get the best of you
Missing your blessings too
The conformation wasn’t coming from me as the
messenger
It was in the poem as the message
Next time you see me on stage
Don’t just see me
Hear Me
