Natasha McGee Poems
BEING A SLAVE
To know the fear of a master To know the wihip in hand To feel the lashes coming Not able to stand
A MOTHER'S PRAYER-SPRITUAL HOMEGOING
I HEARD THE NEWS YOU WERE FEELING DOWN I WANTED TO COME SEE YOU AND STAY AWHILE
'Trust in Him'
You do all you can, to make it on your own And you need someone, will feeling all along God will bring you through the storm and the rain Just keep you head up high, and the sun will shine again
Our life experiences aren't the same. We have our own personalites And that's o.k. But when that image has been changed.
LOVE ME RIGHT
I cried over you day and night Wondering if my love wasn't right I was broken-hearted over you Even before you said were through
I NEED TO BE ME
I PACE MYSELF, FOR THE TURN THEIR'S STILL SO MUCH, I HAVEN'T LEARNED AND YET I THINK TO MYSELF OF WHAT COULD BE?
Thinking of times I would say what's cooking everyday It's an assortment of goodie things Chocolate, pies and banana pudding Enough food and that's Mama's cooking
As the day begins the dreams reveal The night before was a unconscious feel Soothing your body from every end Chocolate Soul is giving more time to heal
The tears I cry is a voice unheard And still I try to speak a word When days, weeks, and months go by And still I ask God-Why?
SO I CLIMB
SO I CLIMB THE MOUNTAINS TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF WHAT'S ON THE OTHER SIDE SO I CLIMB TO CLOSE THE CHAPTER AND START A NEW ONE THAT'S DESIRED SO I CLIMB TO FINISH THE LAP OF THE RACE THAT HAS BOUND ME FOR SOMETIME SO I CLIMB EACH STEP CLOSER TO FIND MY WAY
TO KNOW HOW I FEEL IS BEYOND WORDS TO KNOW WHAT MY HEART FEELS U NEVER HEARD TO SAY TO YOU I CAN'T BEGIN TO KNOW THAT MY LOVE IS BEYOND MEANS $$$.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING EVERYDAY POVERTY IS AN ISSUE IN A MAJOR WAY AIDS IS AN EPIDEMIC OF OUR TIME NO MONEY, NO MEDICINE PEOPLE ARE DYING
Can I Be Me?
It's not easy being me Being judged despite adversity Others seeing what they choose to see While the invisible chains still bind me
TERM OF PRIVACY
The term of privacy is not the same Others taking part in a very sick game Nothing to do, but wait and see The abuse has taken a toll on me

BEING A SLAVE
To know the fear of a master
To know the wihip in hand
To feel the lashes coming
Not able to stand
U hear your heart beating
waiting for the abuse to stop
U never deserve the beating
Even though your Master talk
To have the whip in hand
To feel the lashes come
Not able to stand
While the other slaves look on
Not knowing what to do
They see the wrong take place
They've taking the beatings too
Same pain upon their face
Your back is burning
And the burning won't surpass
The blood is dripping downward
As you look in the Master's ...
