    This don't apply to All...but...if the shoe fits...

    Black Queen Up!

    The things we think are too often not said
    Scared what she might think or what might go to her head
    Dining on the same plate, drinking out the same cup
    White Woman Down, Black Queen Up!

    Portrayed as pure and innocent in the media everyday
    Acting like she know my plight, gonna show me a better way
    Yet I can’t seem to understand why my life she wishes to disrupt
    White Woman Down, Black Queen Up!

    I find it amusing that she tans her skin to my shade
    I’d better hold my tongue, nah, Ima call a spade a spade
    Thinking that you better than me as you walk the runway all stuck up
    White Woman Down, Black Queen Up!

    But in all fairness I will be and am the bigger woman
    You can’t help to yearn for our strength and beauty, Diane
    Or Becky, Jill or whatever you call yourself these days
    Just know that I am the source of the Black Man’s gaze

    Fiery and hot…it just don’t get no sweeter than me
    I got his back through it all most of which you’ve only seen on TV
    Flashy ain’t my style but get in my face and I’ll show you what’s up
    White Woman Down, Black Queen Up!

    I can't understand why I didn't big this one up yet.

    To you, my SANE Sister, I bow and pray that that I will be finding my Royal Self in the Presence of such an immaculate Queen and Empress.

    Thank you for touching my SOUL, we are all...

    One.
