TALE OF STRONG BLACK WOMEN (MTN 7907 4722 0880 96261)

By Janet Caleb

Born to be strong, born to be wrong

We speak courage, faith and devotion

Mothers of children with spirits so strong who may have unbridled imagination

Seeking survival at all cost though we were never meant to survive

We are seen as a threat for being strong for we were imprinted with fear like a faint line in the center of our heads

Learning to be afraid with our mother’s milk

The heavy-footed hoped to silence us, our compassionate and loving heart was seen as a weakness

We still spoke and stood strong never letting our fear way us down

Generations come through us

We are great beings.
