    Beautiful YOU are

    Before you write youself off as a fading fashion trend
    That has gone out of style,
    Or a crime gone unsolved, or a lost file
    You should be reminded of how Beautiful you are.
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
    Lord knows I love to Hold her,
    Close to my heart,
    Her Love is where I got my start
    In life, The trainer in my corner
    For the daily fight.
    There to state my wrong
    And congratulate my right.
    Strong, and enduring.
    Tolerant, and maturing
    Faster then us brothas
    Still stuck on spinnin rims,
    And baggy pants.
    But still willing to give us a
    Chance.
    Beautiful you are.
    Your place in our lives can never be neglected.
    We must first understand you and your struggle.
    In order to respect it.
    Know that you have been the back bone
    For the homes where fathers are
    Unknown. And where the definition of being a man
    Has never been shown.
    Brothas thinkin the grass is greener on the “other” side of the fence.
    Knowing you already had someone down for you
    for so long.
    And when the **** hits the fan, we will see what side the “other” stands on.
    Beautiful you are.
    That star studded sky unique compistion.
    Standing firmly in your position, as the mother to all.
    The jumper cables in my life when my motor stalls.
    My black women, stay strong, hold your head high.
    Let HIS blessings rain down on you from the Blue sky.
    Never settle because that brotha you lookin for
    Don’t have room for you in his car.
    Give him a smile and brush your sholders off
    Cause Beautiful……you are!

    Our sistas need to be lifted up instead of held down, not to be a hater of those who chose love elsewhere but we need to look in our own homes before we look in others

    This was so wonderfully posed, it seemed to flow from the heart. Such a lovely way to compliment us sisters, and I do appreciate this whole heartedly.
