    You don’t pride yourself as being THE woman
    But you pride yourself as being real.
    A loyal friend till the end
    Your desires become secondary when it comes to others
    Able to turn a mans’ heart
    Yet that is not your motive
    Fine as you can be, with a body language of its own
    No Barbie doll persona
    Though true Diva you may be
    You just gots to be real
    Ain’t got time for no mess
    Your time is precious
    Anyone that comes at you must come correct
    Soft flesh you don’t need
    Uneducated brothas, you will not teach
    Speak your mind and tell the truth
    Not trying to play head games
    Just trying to be real
    A strong black woman
    When you need to be
    And that very thing may intimidate the brothas
    But they must realize that all you desire is a man
    That can be a true lover
    For him you’ll go to the ends of the earth and back
    Treat him like a King
    Because he would have recognized you as a queen
    You don’t need a palace or even a mansion
    Simple things in life is enough for you
    Not looking for the spotlight, or fame
    Just for a man that will be true.

    <<CLAPPING>>

    A toast to you brotha...
    As a confident, self-sustaining
    sistah - I am proud that you
    brought the image of the "real"
    woman to the forefront...
    Your piece says a lot, and
    speaks to a lot of strong/real
    sistahs -- as it has for me!

    For this I truly THANK YOU!!
