    I want to love a black brother
    but I don't think he loves me
    I want to love a black brother
    for all that he can be.

    I want to love a black brother
    I want to give him respect.
    I want to love a black brother
    but respect me I think he forgets.

    I want to love a black brother
    and treat him like a king
    I want to love a black brother
    but I don't think he sees me as his queen.

    I want to love a black brother
    because I know his potential is strong.
    I want to love a black brother
    I want to love him long.

    FIRST...

    find a brutha who's on the same level...at the same stage...want the same things...in the same arena as you are...then, love him to death.

    pain is caused by two people...on different planes of existence...trying to stand together as one. it won't work.

    know where you are...then find a companion that's in the same space.

    peace.

    BY THE WAY, THE RIVER IS AIIGHT.

    I really really did cause, trust me sis, I KNOW where you're coming from. Luckily for me, the Creator blessed me with a beautiful brotha.

    But don't you fret none chile, your king is out there and when he comes, he'll be worthy of your love!

    see...

    now you're stereotyping...wanna blame all bruthaz for the WRONG choices of a few. speaking from a brutha'z point of view, we be all up into sistahz...see what i'm saying. there is nuthin...no one more attractive, appealing, enticing, inviting, etc., etc., etc., than my beautiful sistahz...all ova the rainbow spectrum.:) like nappygrl said, he's out there...patiently waiting for the winds to blow you his way.

    keep ya head up.
