Hurt Poem by Ralph O'Grantson


Rating: 5.0

i have to go back
they render too many lashes to my back
the chains and shackles bind me
on this foreign land i cannot be me
i toil to quench their hunger
but i work in anguish and hunger
the forceful sex they always want
never bothering what i want
a mixed race offspring
they mix the race of our offspring
im a female slave
a poor African slave

If I were you I would heed what Mr Romeo Della Valle says, he can see what others cannot, if you have him in your comments then you are what he says, rich in talent, vibrant in what you say, you deserve his complaiments and praise. I think its a wonderful write on how you express yourself, and yes people can be forceful at times, hurts alot I know.
