To That Black Man

We love you even though sometimes
you don’t deserve it.
We are your friends, your sisters, your girlfriends,
your wives.
You lack what we as black women need
the most, respect.
We are struggling ourselves everyday
as we try to overcome the abuse
we have suffered, the love we have lost

[Hata Bildir]
