A Woman With A Backbone - Poem by Nikiesha Richards

She was the typical woman of the house
Doing her best to please her spouse
Always busy cooking, washing and cleaning
At that time it was that that gave her life meaning

Unfortunately he was unfaithful to her, he betrayed her trust
As he gave into selfish desires and lust
She packed her stuff and moved in with her sister
And told him that games are for kids and we’re adults mister

Yeah, I left without even starting a fight
But why should I? you knew what you were doing wasn’t right
Me? Screaming in your face, making unnecessary noise
The love that I have for self won’t allow me to even raise my voice

We have what we have because we chose it
We lost what we lost because we refuse it
Sad for you because now it’s too late
Lies, secrets, unfaithfulness in my life I won’t tolerate
