MAMA SAID

Source: We Heart It

You don’t know me

Yet …

You are throwing

Hate filled

Angry

Words

At me

Chastising me

Berating me

trying to intimidate me

Mama said

There would be

Days like this

She told me …

“Sister, put on

fresh lipstick – red is preferred

straighten your hose

Adjust your crown

And …

Keep your head

held high”

Words like that

From people like that

Are meaningless

Attempts to

Boost their ego

By destroying yours

Indicate cowardly ways

Ignore them

Ignore their hateful words

Be the Better Person

And go on with your life …

GOODBYE

Goodbye

“Goodbye,” she said

It has been – interesting

But …

The time has come

Leaving is difficult

Death is permanent

I  must go …

To find myself …

Staying will only lead to

Death …

Maybe mine …

Perhaps yours…

Death is not

My style

Not my future

The choice made

“Goodbye,” she said

Leaving to Live …
