U want 2 know... by Dea

 

u want 2 know
where my
emotion
less
mothering
instinct
is
on the
operating table
in the hands
of doctors
who cut me
open wide
pulled out
my inner
and kept
two out of three

not the best
ratio
but one
was sucked out
'cause
my husband
wadn't ready
at tha time
and who am i
to challenge
his authority
being of his rib
and what
is not
still breathes
outside of this reality

change is constant
pace is fast
and the past
gets me caught up
lookin' over my shoulder
right up side my head
the hand slaps me back
and the race ain't gonna
stop
'cause i want to
and it ain't gonna
slow
'cause i lost my breath
and it ain't gonna be won
bein' the swiftest
so i'm just gonna
endure
to the end.

my babies
gon be
wit me
til death
do us part
question not
my female truth
fear not
male
patterns
conditioning
behavior

forgive
for we
know not
what we
reveal

a woman's touch
is unmistakeable
a man's touch
comes
and
goes
both leave
permanent
impressions
everything
nothing

i am
who God
created
to change
fear to love
from a back
up against the
wall
to the hand
reaching out
to hold and
help lead
to a better place
God knows
and judges
in the final
analysis

i go
where i
am needed
leaving
nothing
behind
and
taking
everything
with
me.
