    WRITTEN FROM A WOMANS PERSPECTIVE

    You couldn’t possibly comprehend me
    With 1 dimensional eyes that only see
    Superficial facades
    dressed with the made up
    person that I sometimes feel I have to be

    You assume you can identify me
    Because my intoxicating smile interests you
    my sensual hips entice you
    and my smooth, sleek, elegance invites you

    But you are far from familiar with me
    The intelligent, strong, wondrous, black woman in me

    I am helpmeet to Adam
    the better half of Noah
    sister to Cleopatra

    I am Queen of the Nile
    the Power of mother nature
    but all the while

    You are trying to touch my essence
    With insensitive hands
    Breathe my soul
    And with an inadequate nose

    What sounds do my spirit make
    is it at all audible?
    How does my joy and pain taste
    Is understanding the real me at all plausible?

    The sensitive, nurturing, phenomenal, black woman in me

    They call the pyramids, the sphinx, and taj mahal
    Wonders because they are great
    And some enlightened ones
    want to name me wonder number eight

    But I came before them all as a mother for all time
    A wonder that I have made it this far
    And still have a sane mind
    A wonder that after being held down
    higher I continue to climb

    And after all I have
    Done
    Been
    Seen
    And given
    Some are still surprised
    Because their primitive senses
    Cannot surmise
    All the beauty and strength
    Contained in us superb, super, godly black women

    man has not done better in all his tries
    I am the first wonder of the world
    So look again with heart, soul, and love
    And maybe then you will truly recognize

    And although we are works in progress
    We are marvels to see
    If you are impressed with wonders that man has made
    Then look at what God has done
    With the proud, prestigious, impressive black woman in me!

    That's what I'm talkin' 'bout.

    Watch out when a Queen is passing.

    Kneel before her & bow your heads.

    Very well done, my strong sister, do yo' thang.
