Homage To My Hips

Rating: 4.2
these hips are big hips.
they need space to
move around in.
they don't fit into little
petty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.

Pure honest shout of the free self, powerful and striong words for the self feel of never being enslaved.

The poet has dwelt upon a subject that is not generally discussed in our society or if it is discussed, it is done to mock somebody. Here the poet has referred to hips to break free from baseless conventions and to commit herself to real freedom. Thanks for sharing.

This poem is not about a AfrAm hip and the poet does not say so. She even says that these hips were never enslaved. Female hips are always round, even if the female is slim. There is no need to think about obesity.
