Tell Me Mom, Why Was I Born? How Did I Come To Be? Was My Daddy There To Hold Your Hand? While You Were Having Me?..... Did My Daddy Say The Words? “I Love You More Than Life?” Were You Just Another Girl? Or Were You Daddy’s Wife?..... Did He Hold Me In His Arms? With Love And Pride And Joy? Or Did He Leave Without Even Knowing? If You Had A Girl Or Boy?..... Does He Even Know My Name? Does He Know That I Exist? Am I My Daddy’s Heart And Soul? Or Just Another Child On His List?..... Did You Even Love My Dad? And Did He Love You Back? Was It That He Had No Means? Or Was It A Conscience That He Lacked?..... Was Daddy Not The One For You? Was It Hard For You To See? Did You Think You Were The Only One? But Was Number Twenty-Three?..... Did My Dad Destroy Your Life? Or Did He Just Pave The Way? For You To Find Your Future King? And Be A Queen Someday?..... I Know It’s Hard For You To See, That God, He Has A Plan. And That A Queen Must Find Her King, And Not Just Any Man..... So Keep Your Faith In God, Dear Mom, And You’ll Live Happily. For Now You Know, It Takes A King, To Raise A Family..... A Black Panther (P.B.C.O.C.N.) Poem By NEETTA BLACK..... 10-13-1973 .....“Dear Mom.”..........
