Why me, white man? by Frankie Dawson

I was still a virgin, what did you gain?

The memories are painful, present tense. You tell the black man,

"You'd better not touch her."

Yet you wink to let him know I'm up for grabs.

You play the game back and forth.

Oh God, where will I go?

There's no escape.

This is my government, my home, my country.

You speak with authority and morality, white man, yet your intent is to exert power. Why? I can't help myself. I'm the lowest on the human chain. Yes even lower than the the dog dung under your shoe.

Why me? Is it because I have no one in my corner? Is it because I stand up to you? Is it because I was assigned to this task because I could take it. Did the Lord need some person with patience? Cause it's been going on for decades. Why didn't you kill me? Why do you attack my family? What are you trying to prove? Don't you know your end is around the corner? Or was this all so my Lord and savior will get the glory?

I am so much in love with my Lord since you raped me while serving the in United States Air Force...they won't believe rape because I'm a nigger, let alone oral sodomy.

Well, that's okay. Guess what the Lord told me?

Psalm 27 The Lord is my Light and my Salvation--whom shall I fear or dread?The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life--of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:7 Hear, O Lord, the I cry aloud, have mercy and be gracious to me and answer me!

8 You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to you. Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word].

9Hide not Your face from me; turn not Your servant away in anger. You Who have been my help! Cast me not off, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation!

Psalm 28:4 Repay them according to their work and according to the wickedness of their doings: repay them, according to the work of their hands: render to them what they deserve..

Psalm 31:7...You have seen my affliction. You have taken note of my life's distresses.

13 For I have heard the slander of many; terror is on every side: While they schemed together against me, they plotted to take my life,

14 But I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord: I said, You are my God.

15 My times are in Your hands, deliver me from the hands of my foes and those who pursue me and persecute me.

16 Let Your face shine on Your servant: save me for Your mercy's sake and in Your loving-kindness.

17 Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, or disappointed, for I am calling upon You; let the wicked be put to shame, let them resilient in Sheol (the place of the dead)

18 Let the lying lips be silenced, which speak insolently against the [consistently] righteous with pride and contempt.

20 In the secret place of Your presence You hide me from the plots of men: You keep me secretly in Your pavilion from the strife of tongues.

22 You heard the voice of my supplications when I cried to You for aid. You heard me!!

23 I love you Lord, you preserve the faithful and plentifully pays back him who deals haughtily.

24 I'm strong and courageous because I wait for and hope for and expect the Lord!

Psalm 34:17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles.

I'm righteous because of Jesus. Ain't nothing good I've done, I just believe.
