Ain't I a Woman

 
Ain’t I a woman who is your slave?
 
Ain’t I a woman that you treated me like I was already alive but in my grave
 
Ain’t I women who couldn’t read or write?
 
Ain’t I a woman who gave up for the freedom to fight?
 
Ain’t I a woman when you see me you think to be scare?
 
Ain’t I a woman that whites tell each other of the nigga you got to be aware
 
Ain’t I a woman who had so much gratitude?
 
Ain’t I a woman that all whites saw me as having an attitude?
 
Ain’t I a woman who made a sacrifice?
 
Ain’t I a woman who knew that beating me again and again was to pay my price?
 
Ain’t I woman who did what she had to do?
 
Ain’t I a woman no matter what happened stayed with God and became true
 
Ain’t I a woman who people thought they could abuse?
 
Ain’t I a woman who loved God held my hands up high and knew God wouldn’t refuse?

This poem almost shakes the fist in the air declaring, "Ain't I a woman"! Well done with rhyming couplets. The line that ends with "scare" is a little awkward in grammar, but understood to keep solid rhyming couplets. It also added to the flavor of who this particular woman is.

More like a descending set of quotes than a poem. Lacks structure.

Great idea! Love the concept and flow; could be tweaked a little to improve it, though.
