    Arguments in department stores
    when I'm short changed
    or followed for no reason
    you're right there with me
    screaming "no equality"
    bumps in the night
    you never stay locked in closets
    you're behind me with a knife
    as I glare through the peephole
    looking for those that tiptoe
    and climb in and out of windows
    you're my warrior sister
    lights behind me, "pull it over"
    unwarranted, you're yelling endlessly
    at uniformed racist
    we know it's DWB
    that never puts out our fire
    you're the other half of me
    sometimes yours burns when mine is low
    that's how I know we are one
    when my impatience will be my end
    you're always there to take the reigns
    I swear I don't exist without you
    you're how I made it this far
    you help me form my thoughts
    and act on them
    that's why you're me
    and I am you
    and that's why I LOVE YOU

    this is a nice piece, i believe that strong black women should the thoroughly appreciated, as well as strong black men, for they are equally hard to find but worth the search
