    wanted nothing more than to be a family
    raise our son in the shadow of a strong, black male
    until one day he stepped aside, a mirror image of
    his dedicated, handsome and educated father
    what a shock when the man i have known for so long
    the one who fathered my child
    the one who bought me a ring
    stomped on me
    stomped on our family
    stomped out my dream
    now, i will raise my son in a matriarchal household
    and teach him how to respect women
    but, how will i teach him to be a man
    teach him to be a black man
    teach him to be
    how will i make sure he's protected
    when you should protect him
    and i'm protecting him from you
    how can i fulfill all his dreams
    when no different than my dreams
    he calls out for you
    what do i say
    when daddy is a question
    no longer a name
    too young to know truth
    too old not to know
    my deepest regret is
    is letting this go
    on for so long
    and not saying no
    i won't take it no more
    no more will i fear
    no more will i stay
    living this way
    my ship can't go down
    the cargo i carry
    more valuable than treasures
    my son i do cherish
