    ACCEPT ME
    BABY, CAN YOU ACCEPT ME… FOR ME
    NOT THE ME YOU SEE, BUT THE REAL ME
    THAT SOMETIMES PICKS MY NOSE AND FLICKS
    THE SHE THAT WRITES POETRY ON THE TOILET AS SHE SITS
    THE ONE WHO PASSES GAS AND SOMETIMES LAUGH
    THE ONE WHO’S MIND IS ALWAYS MOVING TOO FAST
    THE ME THAT LOVES THE WORLD IN SPITE OF HERSELF
    THE ONE WHO SMOKES, IN SPITE OF HER HEALTH
    THE ME THAT CAN SPEND AN ENTIRE EVENING FEEDING
    THE HURTING AND HUNGRY
    ONLY TO COME HOME SO FULL OF PASSION AND DESIRE
    IN DESPERATE NEED OF SOMEONE TO JUST…SEX ME
    LAY ME ON MY BELLY AND JUST KISS, EVERY INCH
    FROM MY HEAD TO MY TOES
    DRIPPING DROPS OF SWEAT ON MY BODY LIKE RAIN
    AS I BEG IN ECSTASY FOR MORE
    THE ME THAT NEEDS SOMEONE TO FEED MY SOUL
    SOMEONE WHO SAYS “YEAH BABY YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL, BUT YOUR SOUL, IS PURE GOLD.”
    SOMEONE WHO FEEDS ME WITH THE WORD OF GOD
    “SAYING, OPEN UP AND SWALLOW BABY, BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T
    THEN YOU’LL STARVE,”
    SOMEONE THAT UNDERSTANDS THAT I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS
    SOMEONE THAT WILL REMIND ME CONSTANTLY
    THAT GOD FORGIVES AND FORGETS
    ACCEPT ME
    MY ALOOFNESS, THE ME THAT AGGRESSIVELY SPEAKS
    “BABY YOU GOTTA PROVE THIS!”
    KNOWING THAT THIS IS ME YEARNING
    FOR A KNOWLEDGE, AND THE FACT THAT I’M SPEAKING TO A KING
    IS A FACT
    THAT I AM NOT FORGETTING
    CAN YOU ACCEPT THE ME
    THAT DOESN’T ALWAYS WANT TO CLEAN OR COOK
    THE SOMEONE THAT NEEDS YOU TO HOLD HER DOWN
    WHILE WHISPERING “BABY JUST TAKE ANOTHER LOOK?”
    THE ME THAT’S SOMETIMES AFRAID OF THE DARK
    THE ME THAT’S SOMETIMES UNSURE
    AS TO WHERE I SHOULD START
    THE ME THAT MAY LOVE YOU
    MORE THAN YOU’VE ASKED
    BECAUSE THOUGH LIVING IS SOMETIMES CHORE
    LOVING IS NEVER A TASK
    THIS IS ME
    THE ME THAT CAN’T SING
    BUT DOES SO AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS
    WHILE YELLING FROM THE CAR WINDOW
    “THIS IS MY SONG!”
    ACCEPT ME, JUST LIKE THIS, JUST AS I AM
    A DREAD LOCK RASTA
    COVERED FROM HEAD TO TOE
    WITH THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
    TEMPERAMENTAL, FEISTY, FULL OF PASSION AND GRACE
    TO SOME OUTLANDISH DEGREE
    HALFWAY ASKING, HALFWAY TELLING
    YOU NEED TO, CAN YOU
    ACCEPT ME.

    Acceptance is a special thing, for it's not often we find someone who will do just that. Loved this genuine expression poetess.
