Safehomemakers Poem by nia imani


These women here are treacherous,
Backstabbing and vicious,
Malignantly malicious
Parasitic pirrhana fishes.

These women here are seething,
Broken, bruised and bleeding;
Maddened by their needing,
Angry for not foreseeing.

These women here are fighters
Of burning not of fires,
Of energetic liars,
Of apologetic criers.

These women here are smart:
They know what breaks the heart
Is not the end or start
But the breaking of the heart.
