    I am a defiant black woman who won’t accept and
    Refuses to need
    And then I woke up again, like I do ever so often
    And realize I’m hanging from some type of punctuation I’m prying is not a period
    Because I don’t want this to be the end
    So I swing until I can bring my life back up to the beginning of this next stanza that begins with
    Why?
    Why deny myself of myself
    Why never mind the phrases that peek through my intellect
    My core is breathing and I’m suffocating my self education
    Because I’m fully focused on life’s concentration
    And so my meditation falls
    Generations cease at the cost of an education, life and being someone who’s not me
    And now you’re mad at me
    Beating me angrily
    Bleeding through my finger tips
    Making me compensate for my defiant behavior
    Shame on this black female who refuses to abide by the rules
    But what can I say
    I am a black woman who won’t accept and
    Refuses to need
    So I will bleed in acceptance until I can accept that fact that
    I need you.
