Black Woman

by C. F. Hatten

Iím adaptable
I bend
I fold
I integrate perception
I walk
a million miles
in a canyons
depth of fire
Iím mistrusted
& ignored
thru a spectrum
of emotion
my pleas for
nurture streams
of non-support
I march
to hidden rhythm
in the aftermath
of justice
unveiled against
the grain
I adjust
to cool surroundings
