    Inspired by our newcomer Unknown Poet - much love to ya.
    See his masterpiece here.

    Black woman,
    Glorious ebony woman,
    What manner of environment molded you to be this way?
    I glance, stare and drown in your darkness.
    A quiet place
    Infinitely bigger than where the stars rest at night.
    Such a beautiful face
    That erases my memories of death, poverty and black plight.

    Black woman,
    Oh you glorious morenita woman,
    How intoxicating the view of your physical scenery,
    The enthralling mechanisms of your mind elates me.
    The arts you perform in the kitchen must be magic...
    Allow me to kneel before you as your black man.
    Performing at your every whim,
    Handle me with care, but treat me with loving discipline.

    Black woman,
    Glorious Nubian woman....
    I am your shadow, your light, your twin and the reflection in your mirror.
    But who has cursed you with such a sharp tongue and debilitated mind?
    Heavy are the chains that enslave you, but cannot be seen.
    I gladly give my life for you to succeed.
    But I cannot save you from yourself beloved.
    So I cry, pray for, and keep watch over
    Black women,
    My glorious black women.

    Black woman,
    Glorious Afrikan woman,
    Your blackness is the origins of life,
    Your soot pigmentation has spawned calamity and salvation.
    The culture and spirit that heals the world is your doing,
    The first gods and goddesses were but your creation.
    I sit at your feet and soak in your sun.

    Black woman,
    Queen with a crown of beautiful dark curls.
    I will be your support and your aid when they attack.
    Dry your tears, inspire a smile or simply listen when you speak.
    Dance with you, romance with you, build and improve with you.
    An embrace from you is redemption manifest,
    Only you can heal my black pain,
    For none other than you have suffered my fate.
    The reason I am alive is you,
    I offer my life to you.

    Black woman,
    Glorious light-brown to coal-black woman,
    Your skin, smoother than silk,
    Your darkness purer than the white of milk
    The way you sway and swing between the sheets,
    How you naturally wine and grind, pop and lock to the beats
    Appeals to me.
    Pretty wings on your back broken and torn.
    But your laughter richer and more abundant than the blue in the sky
    Oh it shatters my smile when you drop a tear from your eye,
    Black woman, please listen, for I tell you no lie.
    I live and I will surely die,
    For you.

    WOW!

    When you get inspired, you really come through!

    This was STUPENDOUSLY FABULOUS!

    You made me stand a little straighter with this read as well as make me wanna go buy a hula-hoop! (lol) "Shoop-Shoop!"

    This tribute/ode to Black women is endearing and encouraging.

    That's so true, you're alive because of me ...
    there's no other way, we'd have it be.
    Infact, you're our only reason for life ...
    you'll instore all this love in a "wife".
    Thank you for this, it's awesome and unique...
    It puts all us Queens, on this planet...at Peace!
    Just to know that you'll die for that tear in her eye...
    that alone, is enough ...to make a Queen cry.

    Excellent piece brother.

    Thank you kindly, Sister and Brothers.

    You're the inspiration for the rhyme, and I wear your praise proudly.

    What to do with this undying, unrelenting luv for my Sisters? I sigh as I ponder.

    Sister Queentswana, thank you for the flow-back, it made me so happy :) :)
