    She looks at me
    with a look of dismay
    Torn between both love and hate
    She feels she is trapped
    and can't break free
    She dosen't feel safe
    and she dosent feel secure
    all she fills is pain
    and she cant find the cure
    to end this rain
    for the love of a man
    she thought she once knew
    the man who came and left
    and why?
    she never knew
    At this time she thought she made it to the end
    only to find the light
    that only God could lind
    to think of herself as nothing among the mass
    to think of her struggles and not know how she lasted
    for so long of being torn between love and hate
    she realizes today that without love
    how will feelings show
    and there will be nothing but hate
    if we blame one mans mistakes on another mans soul
    Now she feels that she can go on
    looking in the mirror and seeing how strong
    the woman she sees is a black and beautiful
    the woman she is ment to be not the woman they try to make
    her
    so as i look at me through the mirror what does i see
    a strong young intelligent black woman smiling back at me

    JAH bless your soul-
    Realization is like medication-
    the healing is the blessing.
