Black Woman allow thy breath
Let the inhale cover thee rightfully
Hidden to a blind sight a precious form
These eyes uncovered to every
Imperfections place against WE
None understands the shoulders
Those that have felt the gravity
I exhale to embrace thee with warmth
Of thy word that meets in action to know application
Crafted practice in clay watered by joyful tears expelled in tranquility
That one place like a bond of sisters called dedication
Transformed wholeheartedly by confidence in thy masculinity
Uncovered willingness to shine in vulnerability
Beneath that space between what’s favorable to taste
Excavating consciousness in mind where we meet
Black and White
Colouring our canvases when souls speak
