Oh Shonda

"Oh! Darling, please believe me
I'll never do you no harm"- the beatles



Oh Shonda-

Lord knows I understand,
what it means to be seen.

Then,
distorted and
defined,
by a much smaller mind.

Oh Shonda-

Lord knows I understand
what it means to be heard

Then,
interpreted and 
misunderstood,
by a much smaller mind.

They called you 
angry 
black 
woman

they have seen what they wanted to see
they have heard what they wanted to hear.

they want to own your story
and
the contents of your heart,
because of the color of your skin.

I'd be angry too.

Oh Shonda-

I hear you
I see you.
I know you.

Don't worry
Baby, I still love you.
