    let me get this straight
    In today's society of enlightened minds
    the default reasoning is that
    if you are a man you are wrong by default
    and if you are a woman you are right by default
    is that how it works?
    I must be from another planet
    one that recognizes the weight of crocodile tears
    and is familiar with feminine wiles
    one that can see the revolutions of a table turning
    one that perpetuates learning
    I could have sworn that people are people
    and that there is good and bad not only in
    every type of people
    but in each and every person
    should I hate all women because of the sins
    of a few?
    should I revel in the pain of a woman
    to vicariously live through another's so called revenge?
    should any woman do the same thing and hate all men?
    lashing out at every chance?
    just because it sounds good and appealing to our
    sensibilities don't make it right
    don't make it true
    and exactly what part of wrongdoing is right?
    I'm sayin'... exactly what part of evil
    is good?
    I strongly agree that a man ain't a man who can't
    in truth own up to his wrong doing
    but the exact same "human" standard applies
    to women
    I believe in gender equality(human rights)
    even according to God's standards
    and I wish more people(especially men) would look a bit further
    down that road and see where many who cry for equality
    are actually seeking superiority
    exactly where do you think that would leave you?
    or your child comin' up after you?
    Oh... did I talk about something taboo?
    all I know is that God set the order of the stars in heaven
    and the borders of the oceans on earth
    He set the chain of food between predator and prey
    on land
    and God... God, mind you, set the order of husband and wife
    as He set the order of Lord and church
    we are messed up on so many levels it ain't even funny
    and bare in mind that the order of woman and man
    is "not" the same as husband and wife
    (be extremely careful of the vows you make to God)
    and being that this is God's will
    none of it excuses the abuses of one human being to another
    wives should love him
    and husbands should love her
    according to the never changing wisdom of God
    but you ain't tryin' to hear me though...

    The things that separate Black women and men from each other are part of a seemingly unending vicious cycle.... We are agreed. The ONLY thing hope that can conclusively break it is submission to the Creator.... but then, why am I telling you this... you just said it!

    ... eloquently and thoughtfully.

    A good strong scribe, friend.

    Peace!

    this is a smokin read
    and true too
    sometimes when we hitch our wagons onto anothers struggle we delude and dilute our own aspirations as a people
    womens lib has never been about the black family and if you look at the true benifactors of womens lib you will find that it is still white men who put their assets and businesses into females names to once again stretegically position themselves ahead of the game
    and black women when they measure a mans worth by his net worth are being perfect pawns per design.
    sorry about that - guess you got me started (lol)
    good read though poet
    as black men we should hold our daughters up to a higher standard
