Relationships

The Other Woman

Couple outside Temple of Somnathpur - Near Mysore - India

Isn’t it wonderful when a couple makes time for each other?  A healthy relationship can flourish when both the man and the woman stay faithful to each other but sometimes it does not work out the way you anticipate.  When a woman says her  relationship is complicated in  many instances  another woman is in the picture.

It is bad enough when your man is cheating, but what is even worse is when the other woman try to imply that it is your fault why he is cheating.  She often does not see herself as doing anything wrong, at least not until you let her have him and he starts cheating on her with someone else.  She gets angry and upset and it does not occur to her that she was once that woman. It does not sink in that  she was once the other woman.

Strong Black Woman

They told her she couldn’t do it,

But she proved them all wrong.

Poor, bare foot country girl

Wanting to be doctor?

“Must be crazy,” they told her.

But she knew she was sane,

A doctor she wanted to be,

And for that goal she did aim.

 

They looked in awe and wonder,

Said she made them proud.

 Yet they didn’t think her good enough,

For they told her she couldn’t have him,

Asked if she had lost her mind,

Doctor or not he wouldn’t marry her,

Her family was too poor,

And she was just too black.

She pitied their ignorance,               

Felt ashamed for their own

 lack of self-esteem.

 She knew what she wanted                

She knew together they would make a good team.

So she married him, and stupid people that they were,

 They wondered did he really love her or did she cast a spell?

 

Still enslaved by mental slavery,

They find it hard to understand,

That it is not the color of your skin,

Or the family you are from,

That defines you as a man or a woman.

This and more poems for your reading pleasure in, The Collection.
