Below is a poem from the past that I really loved. It can changed up to address any type of man.

Enjoy!

Mr. Black Man - PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for expecting you to be
something that you are not.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for falling in love with you
undeserving and unconditionally.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for expecting you to understand
the complexities of accepting my love
or the simplicities of being a REALMAN.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for giving up the P^&&y
knowing like credit that you can't afford to pay back
in my eyes - you will always be in debt to me.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for expecting you to be - not only something that you are not
BUT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN NEVER BE.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for believing in you
when you do not even believe in yourself.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for trying to take you
to this very SPIRITUAL PLAIN.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for insulting you because
of my wisdom and strength.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for wanting us to be a team
- together trying to find ways to save our BLACK RACE.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for not warning you enough
the dangerous woman I can be
if you keep on accepting my STUFF.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for feeling ashamed and embarrassed
to have loved you.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for acting like you have ever doneanything for me
other than TAKING OFF YOURCLOTHES.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for trying to take you
from mental and emotional slavery.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
FOR SIMPLY LOVING YOU TOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND HATING YOU FOR NOT TREATING ME LIKE A LADY!

This piece of poetic literature and social conscious should resonate loudly to all brothers and sisters.... A poetic statement of expectation, truth and unconditional Love!! I have one question though, Is it because he has failed to reciprocate the same that makes her feel embarrassed and ashamed to have loved him or because others see this and feel as though she has wasted her time and love???

Interesting poem. I have some questions. Did you write this poem? Also, I read in another thread that you had a relationship with a Black man who was, I think you wrote, an activist or something, and now you are married to a White man, and therefore, I am wondering in regards to this poem, does it reflect too, insecurities within yourself in regards to dealing with the everyday problems that Black men face everyday? And does this poem reflect one Black man or Black men as a whole? In the poem it states,

"PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
for insulting you because
of my wisdom and strength."

My feelings in regards to "Black men" in general facing issues of today and in regards to how they respond to Black women could also be not understanding what we also need from them due to issues that we also face in this world. My strength and wisdom 'as a Black woman' comes from having to stand up for myself in the past and sometimes when faced with the Black man, or even other men, is that I too may feel that they are insulted because they may not take the time to realize how i have developed insecurities in regards to them because I feel sometimes that they have failed me[!] when I thought I needed them to be there fore me. This could be in the terms of my father, brother, or friend. yes, I can see how this poem could reflect men, in general as you wrote, but definitely a Black woman's feelings about a relationship with Black men.

And another point in the poem where it reads that 'the Black man is indebted and could never pay back', however, my question to this point would be, what about the other way around. In my experience, some Black men have placed all of their trust in the Black woman, given themselves to the Black woman but have been abandoned by the Black woman as well, and, this could be in terms of the Black woman as her role as a mother or a Black woman as a friend as well.

Thanks for sharing this poem, I think it runs deep.

Thank you.
I wrote this poem a very long time ago when I dated this man, who happened to be Black. :) If I could make list of qualities that I wanted in a man, this person would have almost met every point except for the fact that he CHOSE not be committed to me....ONLY. He said his religion allowed him to have more than 1 wife. Plus our religions would have clashed if we did get married. He was a graduated from the best HBCU. His strength and ambition was admirable. He did not have potential...lol...he was and still is a lawyer. He is very active in the Black Community and he is a leader.

The poem is more about the mistake, I made by making and accepting him as a lover and not saving him and waiting for him to be my husband. The fatal mistake we made was to sleep with each other and than to become... basically a slave to the lust. I want to say love, but real love makes sacrifices and some times that sacrifice needs to be saying no to sex...and having a 'buddy' relationship.

So, the poem is first about what I could have done or not done to take us to the next level. Real men need for us to have these higher expectations of them. When we treat them like they are weak, then they will be weak. I made a personal vow to myself that I will not have another 'buddy' in my life. I know what I bring to a relationship and I was not going to accept anything less. So, when I met the person that is now my husband, I told him right in the beginning that he will NEVER EVER be my buddy, and if that is what he is looking for that he will have to look past me. He admired my control, stance, and discipline. He decided he wantednto court me. We got engaged and got married.

The buddy guy said....'I guess I did not move fast enough. I should have came with ring.'

Plus, personally when a person does not expect great things from me, it is insulting.

The payment piece is about the fact that when a woman sleeps with a man we can never take it back. We give them one of the most precious if not the most precious thing we can give them ever. Some of us do not know our value women. I do not condone prostitution. Lol. He could never ever pay me any amount of money that is eqivalent to letting him 'know' me in the Biblical sense.

I posted that poem to remind me where I was compared to where I am in my life with my husband.

It was my own version of my 'I am just not that into him' poem versus 'He's just not that into you.'

Relationships are a 2 way street. Both people know deep down inside the sacrifices that need to be made for each other.

The poem is not about insecurities. I did believe in being with a man I did not want to be with. I was the independent woman. My own business and good paying career in the top 5%. Highly educated. Did not sleep with men that were terrible in bed. I never was in a relationship because it was something that I had to do. There were many situations were men wanted to marry and be in relationships with me and they or that was not want I wanted at that time.

The poem is about the control that we as women have over our relationships and the men that we CLAIM we love....or care deeply for.

No, this is about accountability on my part as a powerful, strong, and confident woman. Unfortunately, the mistake we made was sleeping with each other. The mistake I made was not having higher expectations of him and not living up to my own high standards. My level of discernment is really high. I believe he was too. We both knew that we were going down the wrong road to hell. The problem is not making the sacrifice and being selfish. I really believe that women have more sexual control over men than men over women. If I am weak AND HE IS WEAK I can make him weakER. If I am strong, I can make him STRONGER.

Of course, there are the men that just do the right thing...he was not that type of person.

The poem is about me acknowledging my strength and power as a woman and not living up to that and allowing him to be mediocre, too.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
