Drops of Gold on my Brown Skin
By: Karmen Grey
Why do black women cry in the dark? What are we crying about this time? A superwoman with no respect, yet she must put a smile on her face and save the world.
You don’t have time for your head to be down, black queen; you have too much to do?
How dare you show anger, sadness, hurt?
Do you not feel those emotions, black queen?
Those emotions are left to the weak, that you are not.
