    I wonder why such a beautiful black face
    almost always wears a frown
    let me sit and talk to you for a few
    i know I can turn that frown upside down
    the way you're lookin' at me
    says you've been readin' Terry McMillan
    probably from curiosity, or the pain from an ex
    let me upfront apologize for that terrible feelin'
    I'm a scorpio on my mothers side baby
    meaning I was built for love
    but my pops raised me like a Leo
    so I have the heart of a Lion just in case your ex tests a T.H.U.G.
    but I don't mean thug as in a gangsta
    this definition, to you may seem odd
    but thug to me means
    Thriving, Humble, Undeniable God's
    and I vow to never be less than that
    give u nothing less than facts
    from my mind, body & soul we can mentally travel to Antioch
    and I will give you nothing less than Acts
    some brothas bring women down
    cause their arms are too short to box with you
    so they revert to their animal instincts
    but you don't need 'em, you got God with you
    but I'm really here to listen
    tell me about all the stress in your life
    cause the look in your eyes says your heart is frozen
    but from every tear drop, I can see how I'm melting the ice
    I can easily get you to forget about your pain
    all I have to do is share my positive energy with you
    so that whenever we're not together
    you can identify any enemies with you
    but I'm all about love
    and it's you that I'm focused on
    why should I let you walk this earth alone
    when in the back of my mind, I know it's wrong
    You may be having a hard time believing me
    but, here take my hand so you can feel my vibration
    for the hands of a man can tell you
    just what type of man you're facin'
    I bet your ex's hands were rough
    though he claimed to be a pretty boy
    on occasion, even borrowed your make-up kit
    but then again, you said he was a pretty boy
    ha ha, see I got you laughin'
    I knew you couldn't frown forever
    your beautiful smile and my whit
    says that we were meant to be down together
    & you represent me like I represent you
    whether I'm in or out of town
    & we can communicate with each other
    with just a look in the eyes, even with out a sound
    some brothas disrespect beauty like yours
    from lack of knowledge, so they feel the need to tear it down
    they get scared when they see you rising above them
    cause they don't want to see you wear your crown
    they'll say you're acting to uppity when they see you reading
    and blame you for the ills of their people
    but you ask him what he's doing to improve
    just to make the playing field equal
    I hate to see my queen
    in a position where she's not herself
    but I can't stand to see a brother take advantage
    and disreguard her wealth
    for we're all were born from a woman
    so to disreguard the same, means u disreguard yourself
    but I was just wondering why such a beautiful black face
    has yet to find away to replace her frown
    everything happens for a reason, so the reason we're here together
    is because the creator sent me here to replace yor crown!

    I was almost rendered speechless with this one. I loved these gentle words which spoke out with such strength. Thank you for this brotha poet.
