Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Are great and are much undeserved
Such feelings of hopelessness and worry
Such a burden, in such an unkind world

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Create depression and feelings of uselessness
Susceptible to false love and security
Denied and treated badly, more than less

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Create instability and much imbalance
Confined to exist in insufficiently
Burdened by the effects of malice

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Exist from the curse placed upon our nation
Yet our men must no longer be weak
We must unite in love and secure our protection

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Are deep and cut like the sharpest knife
Now treated as hoes, freaks, and tricks
Hardly respected as mother, as wife

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Are sad enough to make the whole world cry
Yet this world cares not for our people
In fact the masses would have us die

Indeed the pain of a Black Woman
Trickle downward and affects our seeds
This is the aftermath of a people tortured & robbed
Of our kingdoms, our legacies, our needs

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Steadily increase as our families are lost
We must turn this fate of death and destruction
We must rebuild no matter the cost

Indeed the pains of a Black Woman
Are intended to continue our sorrow, our fall
Yet we are Queens of this world, nothing less
We are survivors, the most powerful and ancient of all!
