A Mad Black Woman

Torn down by abuse and a broken heart Never even mended, not one little part I’m a mad black woman Bitter to the bone Cut down by lies from my head to my toes I was always taught to look up and to live by faith But this world has done so much to me No man ever filled that space I’m a mad black woman Because that’s just me You see me and you see pain When you see me I look so strange Why? I’m a mad black woman Because I want to be I’m a mad black woman though in my heart the men can’t see You think you can tear me down by the words you always say? By the way you enter my life and leave but never want to stay? You think I am moved by the material things, The things that never last I want to forget about everything and move on through to the future, not stay in the past This mad black woman within me is outspoken, real, and straight to the point This mad black woman within me is not hard to sort I’m a mad black woman because I want to be I’m a mad black woman simply because that’s me!
