If I dared to speak about my love for you

I know what everyone will say.
“You’re just going to be disappointed.”
“Our men are hopeless.”
“You’re better off with someone else.”
“Blah, blah, blah.”
I feel sorry for the lovers of white men.

They just would never understand why
we chose each other.
For there are no words
in this disgusting English language
to describe the love
that made me revolutionary.

  1. Why am I feeling a sense of.............. fear?

    1. Perhaps you are projecting your own fears in your interpretation

    2. Perhaps you are feeling the fear of introspection - the fear of facing your oppressions - that necessarily involves the process of decolonisation.
