Trauma, Resilience, Triumph

by Isaiah Johnson

The young black woman faces a lot of trauma
Being dragged through social drama
The statistics of being A single momma
No one listens to our queens cry
They only get temporary love often lust
It breaks their hearts and makes them lose trust

Black women are fighters who display resilience
Grinding to help their families it makes sense (cents)
The life of an ultimate warrior
Their everyday life they are not looking for a reward
She is gone fight
She is gone make sure it’s alright

The feeling of triumph is relief
After our young black queens drown is disbelief
She went to college and got her degree
She can pursue and be whatever she wants to be
Better and higher income so the kids can eat
She can pay the light bill now the kids can see
