slam poetry for Ms. robinson H period

February 15, 2012
For every person dragging travel-sized baggage
Anyone who ever slipped up for one second
And let what someone said about you
Define you,
More than anything you ever said about yourself.

For every person struggling to raise a family
Selling drugs
Their bodies on the corner of streets
Doing everything they possibly can
holding down two minimum wage jobs.

To the women who did not raise you but loved you
before you even existed,
Who raised you on their own backs,
Who where called bust downs, h**s and s***s
You are beautiful and don’t forget it for one second.
