    sister get up off your back
    get your self intact
    you are a queen
    and you cannot reign with him
    constantly between your sacredness
    like that

    i watch
    sadness in eye
    confused about identity
    thoughts of who am i
    painted on face
    placing soul
    into the hands of confusion
    keeps on loosing
    baby daddy heartbreak number one
    did not stick around
    (click-click)
    baby daddy number two
    penitentiary pity
    locked down
    (click-click)
    so what is next

    i let him inside
    the thickness of my thighs
    so that his manhood will rise
    i like the look in his eyes
    when i give him pleasure
    and if i please him
    he will stay
    (click-click)

    pleasure is plenty in the big city
    with so many women thinking
    the way she does
    mistaking pretty faces singing
    sweet songs as love
    giving away the goods to soon
    aint good
    it becomes a bad decision
    when the prison of uncertainty
    and not knowing
    builds bridges
    leading far away from reality
    the bridges are often weak
    breaking before the journey
    back to sublime even begins
    falling into the water
    back at sudden start
    cycle resets again (click-click)

    young and in her prime
    this should be the time
    where she really begins to enjoy life
    twice fooled by the fact of
    ***** don’t make the ***** stay
    buying pampers
    rocking babies
    doctor appointments
    daycare and rush off to work
    aint fun at all
    so for comfort she has to search

    in the midst of slick sly smiles
    and miles of brown bodied boy-men
    they tend to take her out of her mind
    got to find one
    got to find one
    (click-click)
    and it begins

    you are beautiful
    nothing more than to be with you
    would be all i want to do
    your worries fears and doubts
    give them to me
    and i ll be your strength
    and what more could you need
    the children are you
    and you are what i want
    so now we don’t even
    have to have this conversation

    after work he makes his way
    to new found prize
    play with the children
    put them to bed
    long gazes in her eyes
    caught up in web unseen
    because scenes of mr. right
    shine too bright
    good love making
    got to go
    must be at work early
    you know

    this could really be it
    i think he is the one
    for me
    i will stick it out
    nothing else to do
    but wait and see (click-click)

    holidays
    quick stays
    his time gets less and less
    midnight make love
    two hours later must leave
    she is deceived once more
    married men cannot make too
    much time for mistress
    now i can’t believe she missed
    this

    sister get up off your back
    get yourself intact
    you are a queen
    and you cannot reign with him
    constantly between your sacredness
    like that

    rounds and rounds
    of giving it away
    hope he will stay
    can tear a queendom down
    we as women need to know who we are
    and it can be found within
    we have to be careful and cautious
    about the decisions we make
    for the sake of our reign
    for the sake of our children
    they need fathers
    and not that quality-time-on-the-weekend-
    child-support-dad

    know who you are woman
    know what you need woman
    know who you want to be woman
    he came he cums and leave
    will soon wear itself thin
    and you are so much more
    than some man’s relaint whore

    the next time you choose to part
    your legs
    be mindful of who you are
    so that the scar of unprecise thinking
    does not leave waste for the womb
    and no more
    click-click
    after
    click-click
    and
    click-click
    you are a queen

    brown bodied boy men.... The doors of the church are open. MZNappi, you put it down my sista. Tell it fo sho. Sometimes I try and tell the young sistas just because you can have sex don't make you a woman. Think about the consequence of your actions because they are bound to bring reprecussions. Amen again sista amen!!!!!

    I need my young doughters to read this love letter before it is too late and the cycle begins. They are Queens and should act like it.
    RESPECT
    Thank you

    Ms. Nappi...This Is Tuff

    It's so good to read from you again. I really enjoyed this righteous and insightful read. This should be framed in the halls of ignorance and gullibility. It's sho nuff the truth.
