    Our women are calling
    Black Queens on a mission
    Calling all Kings
    Men that are missing

    They call to us loud
    They call to us clear
    They are calling my brother
    It's time for us to hear

    Queens needing Kings to avoid the trap
    That socio/mathematical scheme
    Historically keeping us apart
    Chasing something
    Anything
    While other folks kids get the better start

    She's not so strong to do it alone
    Though many have done it successfully
    Too high a price must be paid
    And it's really not how she wants it to be

    The call is out my brother
    She doesn't want to be a martyr
    Carrying the sign that says, "I'm doing the best I can"
    Knowing she is capable of so much more
    Needing only the love and support of her man

    And it is the love of a Black Man she wants
    Don't be fooled by stories in Essence Magazine
    Or statistics showing more white men on the scene

    Please!

    No one can love her the way we do
    It's us the're calling for a love that is true

    And so much more than just physical love
    It's our glow, our strength, our emotion, our style
    Our look, our rhythm, our minds
    Our tears and our smiles

    She's calling for our fearless hearts
    Comfort and protection when she's in our arms
    Calling for the peace
    Found only in our charms

    She's calling for our lives
    A call for our loving spirit
    We must listen with our souls
    If we ever are to hear it

    Whoa!

    This flow is so real. It may seem to many as if we are strong and can make it on our own, but it's not that way at all. It's what we must do when put in that situation. I know many of us long for a strong black King in the late nights or the wee hours of the mornings, when alone and silent surrounds us giving way to a tidal wave of thoughts that are drowned out during the day from the noise of society shouting out to us, that we are strong enough to make it without our King. This needed to be said and heard. Thank you.

    I respectfully bow to you in gratitude.

    MadLove:heart: Coco
