    Even though I knew you were a broken vessel
    I poured all of me into you and counted it all joy
    Because even when you didn't believe in you I did
    I have been championing your cause since day one
    I believe that you shall rise from the ashes one day
    Better for your time of refinement inside the fire
    No matter what I won't and cannot give up on you
    For we are join together like threads woven in a fabric
    Until the sun quits shinning and the moon stops rising
    I'll be in your corner pushing and praying for your success
    Sometimes the heatache and struggle seem way to much
    And I want to unweave the cords that binds us together
    But my heart and soul won't allow me to leave you behind
    For together we rise and divided we continue to fall
    So as long as I am still breathing I'll be on your side
    And I'll bear it all for you mean just that much to me
    We need you to rise up and take your rightful place my king
    Your seed needs your upstanding example to look upto
    Can't you see what has happened to them in your absence
    Young brothers have forgotten how to pull up their pants
    young sisters have forgetten how to keep their skirts down
    And your counterparts mourn you lose to point of bitterness
    Without you our whole community has no legs to stand upon
    King oh king rise up and be the man you were meant to be
    my dearly beloved king I have awaited you return patiently
    So king don't tarry but arise and begin to reign honorably again
    For time has come for you to be the king your were created to be

    Calling out to our kings is a queen poetess who is anything but simple. Making it known that as a queen, she'll never give up on her kings, no matter what. This was outstanding!

    For too Long_ No More Can it Wait!

    Thank You Sister asimplepoet

    As A King. I Hear you My Queen.

    I hear all of You and Respect You
    For Standing for Hundreds of Years in wait.

    I say wait no longer.

    The RISE is over due.

    I will be King again.
    I have learned that fighting.
    Back stabbing and unfair dealings only hurt you.

    So I forgive my past.
    I forgive the pain.

    I will always and only stand NOW WITH YOU my QUEEN.

    The THRONE. We both Own!

    Me sitting. You sitting by my side. :couple:
    Me consulting with other elders, and with you because woman you are wise.

    Your insight makes me ponder.
    Your blessings are abundant.
    Your beauty reminds me of what is at stake.

    I want to never lose this again.
    So As I stand.
    I take your Hand.

    Queens of Destee

    You all have always Raised the Spirit
    Always have Supported your Black Men.

    Thank You for Being You!

    Yes sis, we've waiting for a very long time, But I know that we are waiting on Royalty, so I'll be patiently praying, that they will come home soon, making it ever so worth the wait.
    Bless sis, beautiful scribe!

    WHOODIE-HOO! SPEAK!

    :bowdown:

    Tell 'em that we need them, our children need them, and that there can be no true "village" if our huts are half-empty; but we're still looking out, still hoping and waiting for our "warriors" to come back home.
