    I wonder why time is spent wasting time
    Or why my love songs stay on your mind
    You say you can’t wait to see me
    Or maybe you just can’t wait to see these thighs
    So we say “I don’t have time to waste,”
    Those words have left a solid taste,
    Still we continue to dwell on our empty souls leading to empty faces
    Confusion of self,
    Might as well put me on a shelf
    To be displayed to the world
    Glorify me not…live by me not… understand me not
    Instead you waste more time using time on me
    Maybe you’d understand these words if they were dressed in diamonds
    With a phat ***…having no class
    Or dubs and 22’s with 14-inch TV screens
    Screaming out “***** look at me!”
    “I just wanna be seen” seen in yo’ skin
    Forgetting who I AM within….so
    Who cares…right?

    Allow the skin you live in to understand you
    Not define you
    Remind these men that true beauty comes in plenty shapes and sizes
    And my mind is worth more than any boob, ***, or cl!ck is
    Or anything a million can by him
    Remind these men that you have a voice from God
    And you will lead and guide as many souls as possible
    Remind them that having a vagina doesn’t make you a woman
    Just like a penis doesn’t make him a man
    What defines you, is your character and sense of self…
    Dependability and willingness to help those who can’t help themselves
    So what if you don’t have the body of a movie star!!!
    Love your body and every inch of it
    Learn to appreciate the face that carries it
    Learn to love who YOU are
    You can’t and will never be like the “women” on TV
    And you shouldn’t want to be
    All that glitters isn’t gold sweetie
    But you are indeed a true beauty…young or old
    Your heart is gold-n

    I wonder why time is spent wasting time on someone who isn’t worthy of your time
    And I wonder why that “someone” is always robbing you of yourself
    I wonder why so many women are searching for a man
    And losing themselves in the process
    True love comes in due time…and I am sick and tired of women depending on men
    And their exterior beauty
    You get what you look for…right?
    And if you surround yourself with superficial people,
    Then that’s who you’ll become
    And that’s the kind of men you’ll attract…
    “What goes around comes around”
    When your looks go down so will his “love”
    Still you continue to dwell on your empty soul, leading to an empty face
    Confusion of self,
    Might as well put you on a shelf
    To be displayed to the world
    Glorify him not…live by me not… understand you not
    Instead you waste more time using time on him
    Maybe you’d understand these words if they were dressed in diamonds
    With tight abs…having no respect, and the new Sean John jeans
    Or dubs and 22’s with 14-inch TV screens
    Screaming out “***** look at me!”

    True love of self, that inner self, is surely devine. Our "essence" that which makes us unique, why even try to change that, we can't, why even waste the time? High time to embrace. Well written and powerful scribe.
