    I am reexploring..refining...redoing...rehabing...reworking..continuing..so:


    I am not a young girl,nor do I wish to be
    not a young girl, except inside...you see
    not that old...I hope you know
    I believe as you age ...you grow
    I have lived this long
    made it to this place
    black woman i ..struggling to be brave
    black woman I...sometimes a girl...afraid
    but not a young girl
    nor do I wish to be
    I am a woman
    healthy,
    shaped,
    ready!

    I really like this deepy, it's reminiscent of an anthem of sorts

    As I read, I heard these words inside...connecting to many of

    my own emotions and thoughts

    Very nice!
