Earth Mother (Dedicated to my strong women of color)

by Levi J. Baldwin III

Women of color mothers of our earth...
Under appreciated when only you can give birth.
To sow the seed of life into our next generation...
Always mistreated suffering man's violation.
Telling YOU what can be done with your bodies...
Without mothers man would've never come to be.
So much history is distorted by what we see...
Dipicting white people first in stories and T.V..
You are the earth mother, creator of all others.
Teachers as well as lovers, forgiving us crazy brothers.
Strong, passionate and beautiful with inner strength of ten men...
Through guidance and education one day you will be praised again.
