    I see we have some friction from the piece I wrote so be encouraged
    I am not trying to cut your throat.
    My heart is filled with love you see, from woman to man it's coming
    from me!
    No "All Men Are Not Dogs" as C Kelly Robinson said in his book.
    To know this and honor this takes only one look.
    From the brother's who struggle to survive everyday...trying to take
    care of family and community in a Positive way.

    Loving your black Queens, thick thighs, bigg booties, stretch marks
    and all, there to comfort when we need you and there to answer our
    call. I am a witness of what it truly means to be black on black loved.
    All of the fantasies I as a girl was dreaming of.
    Covered in your chocolatedness, the father of my child.
    All things bright and beautiful the color of your smile.

    Listening to the media hype I have never been a follower.
    Determining what I want in my life, I opened my heart and mind
    like a flower. Into my life I welcomed you, to love you like a
    woman true blue. Giving love and receiving love is a gift we give
    to each other. Remember we are your sister's , your lovers and
    your mother's.

    Not all men are dogs, a point I need to emphasize...and if you
    took my piece the wrong way it something you need to realize...
    A poem is written for many reason, forsaking my brothers is
    tantamount to treason. So know that even when I am spouting
    some long needed distress. My goal in all is to make sense
    of the mess.

    Not all men are dogs, or what would that make us...
    So know that if the shoe don't fit , then you don't need
    to fuss! And you don't have to wear it...and if you are
    a loving black man, then do your best to share it.

    Blessings my sister a warrior understands as woman as men.
    We are our brothers keep as well as our sisters.
    We wear the black face even though many confuse truth
    with hate. So sad that the bad conflicts with the Good.
    Truth shall not be silence but within the darkness that we
    live truth is hated. Actions speaks louder than words.


    Wisdom to know and wisdom to apply continue to teach.
    This comes with the territory when knowledge is revealed.
    We all see through the glass windows, but many are not
    brave enough to call a spade a spade.
    Continue to teach. A warrior of truth never back down to
    defeat keep the lights burning the truth shall sink in
    even though we know that all black men are not dogs.
    As the sins of the father, the sins falls upon the
    nubian king. As woman also we carry the curse.

    NO APOLOGIES JUST CLARIFICATION!

    Thanks for your encouraging words. Sometimes I feel like I am
    being censored for speaking truth...but as my Momma said
    "Tell the truth and Shame the devil!"

    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    LOVE YOU MUCH ONEPOETSOUGHT!

    I don't have a problem with responses, it's when people take it personal and go on attack and tell you what you should and shouldn't say in your own poem!
    It's all good though...Thanks for supporting me!

    Blessings on ya House! :peace: :peace: :peace:

    Why don't you just not reply to my post!

    I have tried to get along with you despite your obvious "issues",
    I have tried to support you despite our difference of opinions.
    I don't come on anymore of your posts and make negative comments, nor do I tell you
    how to write, what to write or what is necessary..."IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU?"
    I suggest you seek professional help for your "Delusions of Grandeur!"
    Consider yourself "Persona non grata" in my book@ you have been reported.
    Now go away pest ...for I :bazooka: for real!
    I am tired of making nice with you and you obviously have issues with me
    being me! I make no apologies for being a strong minded black woman who
    expresses herself as she see's fit. I don't negatively criticize peoples work
    or their creative process....
    :flame: :flame: :flame: :flame: :flame: :flame: :flame: :flame: :flame:
    DO SOME SOUL SEARCHING...WHY ARE YOU REALLY HATING ON ME! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: YOU BORE ME WITH YOUR PETTY *** WAYS!
    IF YOU REPLY THERE WILL BE REPRUCUSSIONS ...
