These 8 Poems Are A Reminder That Black Women Are The S**t

There are no hardships, glories and frustrations like those that stem from the experience of black womanhood. 

With the pervasive nature of misogynoir ― seen everywhere from reality TV to the lack of media coverage around missing black girls in Washington, D.C. ― it can be difficult to remember just how exceptional we are. 

So in honor of World Poetry Day and the absurdly moving nature of spoken word, we’ve gathered a few poems that lay out exactly what makes black women so dynamic. These poems are essentially a reminder that we’re the s**t. 

Disclaimer: Some of the following poems contain profanity. 

1. “10 Things I Want To Say To A Black Woman,” Joshua Bennett

2. “P***y Poem,” Jasmine Williams

3. “This Woman,” Alysia Harris

4. “For Women Who Are Difficult To Love,” Warsan Shire

5. “A Message to Women,” Reyna Biddy

6. “Black Girl Magic,” Shasparay Lighteard

7. “Black Girl Blues,” Masterpiece Poet

8. “Black Girls Be Boxing,” Stella Binion

THE LIFE AND WORKS OF CHARLES LAMB – DEMOCRITUS – Junior have put my finishing pen to a tractate De Melancholia, this day, December 5, 1620. First, I blesse the Trinity, which hath given me health to prosecute my worthlesse studies thus far, and make supplication with a Laus Deo, if in any case these my poor labours may be found instrumental to weede out black melancholy, carking cares, harte-grief, from the mind of man.

Sex on the Brain: Poems and Stories for Men


Can you remember your first crush? Your first orgasm? That fateful day you lost your virginity? Where it was, and who with? The time of day? The music playing? Was it just the best ever, or a total disaster? What about your second lover. Your third. You forgot already?Okay, try this. Have you ever counted up the number of people you’ve slept with? Really? That many? Do you regularly have sexual fantasies about people other than your partner? What’s wrong with you, are you some kind of freak? How many times does it happen? Ten times a day? Twenty? Not the kind of number you’d care to share with your girlfriend, huh? Chances are it involves someone you probably shouldn’t be fantasising about at all. Rape fantasies? Dude, slow down, you’re way ahead of me.Okay, here’s one. Should religion keep its nose out of sex? I mean if sex is so sinful how come more holy men have been convicted of sexual crimes than porn stars?This one’s really left-field. What is it about breast implants that drives men crazy? What would it be like to live in a world where men picked up six-packs of women from the supermarket, and women got to squeeze their men before buying?How does it feel, paying for sex? Did the Marquis de Sade design the first dental nurse’s uniform? Why are Christmas parties and weddings so great for the divorce business?
