Best Susan Benjamin Poems

+ Fav Poet


This fucked up world thinks I'll 
bend down nd let it butt-fuck 
Fuck me? 
Hell nawww... I will not cowar 
to the ways and demands the 
wind brings - though nature is 
the mother I refuse to let that 
bitch hurt me.

I refuse to dance to the tunes 
of wat 'they' sing .. 
They being the luke warm 
motherfuckers who think life is 
but a playground ..
Shut the fuck up nd listen to 
these sounds! 
These are the sounds made by 
a once silenced poet.. 
These are the sounds made by 
the curve of my pen .. 
Bitch these are the sounds 
made by blackberry as I bless 
its keypad with a combination 
of words .. Words I call 
Now can yu see? 
Can u see the blood stains on 
my fingers as I murder you 
with words .. 
As I refuse to let you undress 
evrything but my mind .. 

I am not goin to sit in a corner 
sulkin about how u took a life 
from me - 
Self pity is a nigga I won't let 
touch me ..
I refuse to allow your filthy 
waters to find me- 
After all- I only knw one 'Flow' 
The flow of my ink as it paints 
my unheard down .. 
The flow of my skin as it 
radiates my poetry .. 
The flow of my hair - thou um 
not white- bitch I'll make it 
flow with poetic roots .. 

I am more than being with 
boobs and a vagina.. 
Iam more than a rib that was 
extructed from a man .. 
Iam more than the words I 
write .. 
Iam more and more- iam 
poetry.. Iam poetry 
nicknamed Susan .. Iam 
Susan ThePoet ... 

I am the moon that sees all- 
the sun that shines bright- the 
stars that are always born .. 
Iam more than the leather 
bag you call my flesh .. 
Iam .. ME!!!! 

Therefore I refuse to let 
you(Life) hurt me again ...
