Poetry!!! #WordyWednesdays

Hello All! Today’s poem was one I wrote about a relationship between a man and a woman. Turns out, it kind of relates to my Open Letter To Black People that I posted for my social media followers yesterday. A woman who chooses to go back, it’s up to her, but is it worth it? Enjoy!

The best way to say “I love you” is changed behavior.
Tried to love you from my heart, but found out soon after.
The best way to love you is to leave you alone.
I’m not trying to figure you out, I’m just too grown.
& when I ask you do you love me, just leave me alone.
Yea you a good actor, but we already know.
You ain’t tryna love me. You just tryna play me.
You tryna get these birds on that skeet skeet skeet.
Bring her to your mom & you’ll see see see.
The feeling you have for her is only temporary.
I caught feelings for her & it’s really scary.
But not the type of feelings that you thinking you see.
This feeling of rage got me going crazy.
I wanna go and find her but don’t wanna seem weak.
My issue is with you but she not innocent as she think.
You just thinking bout’ your life & not the life we make.
Or I make.
But you fake.
Yea you sleep.
But I’m wake.
& I decide to choose you but that’s the risk I take.

When they know they Know

Sometimes you will be confused, melanated gems, why you put yourself out there, and it seems like, people don’t feel the same way about what you do as you do. You put your all into your craft, and the people who you think would love what you do are actually the ones who fall off. It’s not that they don’t know you’re good, they just don’t want it to be you. Remember the pie I talked about in my last blog post? The white supremacy pie that makes everyone who’s not a part of that system fight for one piece? Well, it fuels insecurity and competition.

We already know the statistics, Black women start 763 businesses a day. On a whole, we have to work harder to sustain because we just don’t get the support needed to sustain. I am so happy when I see Black owned businesses because I know what it took to get there. I’m here to tell you that, if the idea was given to you, it’s because you were supposed to fulfill it. What other people say is only their input/opinion, but it is not part of your design. Even the system who rejects you, is not part of your design. Don’t you know, melanated gem, that opposition has to come when you are on the path to greatness, and it may be sad or confusing when it’s your own people, but just remember, we have a lot to do in terms of self love amongst the Black population. Our global self love was robbed from us, you achieving your gift will allow others to achieve the same.

Even though we live in a system that is built for our oppression, we should never, ever, doubt our gifts. People actually know you are good, in fact, you’ve heard it your whole life from unlikely people, you know it’s in your heart every second of the day; and although encouragement is nice, it’s not necessary when you know what you have inside of you. I’ve come to understand that on the road to greatness, opposition comes to force out the greatness in you. I also understand that in my own path, elders always encourage me and recognize the greatness in me, they always encourage me to keep going! Your encouragers are there, just keep them and ignore the rest. Any important, valid feedback will always help build up, it will never tear down.

When they know, they know; but what’s more important is that you know. You know the greatness inside of you, you know what makes you light up, so keep that, and if anyone in your life doesn’t aid in that path, unfortunately, they can go! Your work may benefit them in the long run.
