Song At Midnight

…do not send me out
among strangers

Sonia Sanchez

brothers,
this big woman
carries much sweetness
in the folds of her flesh.
her hair
is white with wonderful.
she is
rounder than the moon
and far more faithful.
brothers,
who will hold her,
who will find her beautiful
if you do not?

There is beauty to be found in all women. Beautifully written poem.
