Black Poetry : I’m still a Man.

I’m a man

Does not mean I don’t have feeling

That I’m all rock

Cause I’m not


I want to feel the love

Feel wanted

Feel needed

But I’ve been told

With words as bold

That I need to just love me

God Adam and Eve

So I don’t by any means believe

I supposed to do this alone

Yes it’s nice to hear

I love you

It’s wonderful to hear

I miss you

But what takes the cake

Is the actions behind the words

And feel that too

Sad part is what I’m missing

Always has a reason

Like it has its seasons

But it doesn’t change the fact

That I need to feel it to

Am I supposed to be like most

A fulfill my need somewhere else

Cause I’m not one to cheat

Guess I have to take care of it myself

But then why should I stay

Waiting for things to change

Waiting and hoping maybe today

I’m slowly realizing this don’t make sense

Like shampooing you hair without the rinse

I feel myself changing

Changing into someone I don’t like

Cause I pride myself

On being a one woman man

I don’t believe in cheating on woman

The woman I love

And I pray daily the thing get better

I pray that she sees me

I pray that she shows me some love

And all that prying seems like it was just time spent

With me on the ground with my knees bent

And that change I’m beginning to feel

Is like I’m not beginning not to give a ****

But I’m holding myself back

From doing something I regret

But hoping she’ll change and look after me

Is something I believe won’t happen I bet....

So I stay the course and do as I should

Be the man I’ve always have been

Even try to be better for her if I could

But honestly I feel like I’m just wasting my time

And this heat of mines

Has truly flatlined

But I’m trying

Cause I really want to it work

I’m just tired of the neglect

And tired of the hurt...

Feels like I’m fooling myself

It’s not like I have someone else

It’s like I don’t want to believe what I feel

But it when I speak on it it becomes real

So I try to smile and make the most of the day

And all I get is companionship

But then again she told me she did not want this relationship

Now it’s day by day

I feeling like maybe it’s best I get out of her way

Maybe I need to find someone who wants to be with me

Be in a relationship no matter how difficult it may be

Cause I know she does not love me the way I love she

Maybe it’s just not meant to be

But I want it to work so bad

It hurts and makes me so sad

And talking to her won’t change a thing

Only adds more distant is all it brings

I need help.

Maybe the best way to get out of this rut

Is to go into full mode of not giving a ****!

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
