Comments about Angela Davis
For so long I buried and denied
the anger that dwelt within
for all the horrid deeds done to me
that which I could not repress
I redirected at me
so strong was my fear
so ingrained the self loathing
I must have been horrible
I must have been ugly
I must have been stupid
else you would have loved me
So many years it took
to know this is false
So many years of my life lost
to the harm that you caused
You left me broken
You left me shattered
I was afraid and alone
and you didn't give a second thought
Now I ...
The sky has lost its color; it looks dull and gray.
The world has lost its charm, and I wish it would go away.
I want to stay here inside myself, hidden in my pain.
The hopes I’ve been clinging to no longer remain.
I’ve cried out almost daily, told you how I feel.
You disregard my pleas; you don’t think I am for real.
You think I will just lay here accepting what you do,
Like a dog cowering at its master’s feet, begging for mercy.
This game grows ever so tired; we’ve been down this road
