HOW did it happen,

why did Trump get elected ?

Why was the most

qualified woman rejected?

I thought we were

farther along with Obama

That both men and women

were healing our drama

But unconscious shame

was hiding our rage

We weren’t healed enough

to turn history’s page

The black man and woman

had brought the truth out!

Misogyny, racism unleashed

without doubt!

All of this darkness

now had to be felt

No more denying

the cards that were dealt

All black lives matter!!

and Hell yes, Me Too!!

We had to wake up

and feel ALL that is true!!

Or old hidden wounds

would threaten us still

If left in the dark

to unconsciously kill.

So when Trump is gone

And our atonement is through

Then I will be grateful

We were forced to face truth.
