    Dialogues with the wall over long hidden injuries
    that cannot or will not be spoken of.
    Long suffering women dream of promises , they
    dream of love.
    Women in so many places, different spaces , with
    the same need.
    Some one to love them someone to believe!
    What have we accomplished what have we acheived
    with souls as barren as the dessert no moisturizing
    nurturing for us, always giving never getting.

    Diaspora sounds so foreign but sexism and racism is
    universal.
    Successful men drape diamonds around lily white throats
    with the blood of children on them invisible to the naked
    eye! I wept for nations. But, who wept for I?

    Pounding fists into pillows that moments earlier were
    used to muffle our cries as some monstrous soul forces
    the ulitmate violation and rapes us over and over again
    when we refuse to be reflections of the ideal when we
    seek to hide our appeal neath a few extra pounds.

    Praying to an unseen force that guides us from sometimes
    sleepless slumber, as we watch our dreams torn asunder
    warnings flashing in our heads like thunder as we dialogue
    with the wall...AND THE HAND WRITING SAID
    "YOU SHALL STAND THROUGH IT ALL"
    FOR MY SISTERS IN THE STRUGGLE-

    My humble appreciations fellow scribes my absence has profited me much. For in my silence the muse dwelt and creative flow did abide and I and my id and ego just enjoy the ride.
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSES!
