 The Collection: A Book of Poems By Marva Seaton

Authored by Marva Seaton

In The Collection Marva explores the intricacies of human relationships. She walks you down avenues of love and harmony, deception and betrayal. She exposes some of the harsh realities of abuse against women. There are happy moments, sad moments and moments of outrage. It all comes together in this compilation of poems – The Collection.

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.
