Fatigued

By: Author Renee’ Drummond-Brown

 

All our lives us colored gals been attacked, raped, an hacked. Been called

ev’rythang, BUT… the child of God:

Negro, black, napped, ugly, bald and fat. And you know this;

this is fact! So.

What do you thank’ we care bout’ lil’ ol’ you

doin’ us in too? Never forget this…

When we are weak,

we are mightier than you!

 

“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong”

(2 Corinthians 12:10 KJV.)

 

“I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired” (Civil Rights Activist Fannie Lou Hamer.)

 

Dedicated to:

When a colored gal grows weary WATCH OUT she becomes Mandinka strong.
