 PAD Challenge Day 13: Write a “how to blank” poem. 

 

How to Love a Black Man that Loves You


Open your arms wide

Restrain from robbing him for his pride 

 

Open your heart wider

Remain his confider

 

Listen like he’s your favorite song

Massage his temples to keep his headstrong

 

Pray with and over his name

Be his sunshine and joy through the pain

 

Give him space

after the world knock

him down on his face

 

Lend him a warm shoulder

And some humor to make

his smile a little bolder

 

Don’t let his soul crumble to the floor

Feed him what he’s hungry for

 

Be tender and care full with his emotions

Stay full of encouragement, inspiration, and devotion

 

Support his cause

whether he win or lose,

apply some applause

 

Appreciate his talents

stay strong to keep

him well-balanced

 

Love on him

like how you want

him to love you
