    I search high and I search low
    trying to understand the path to go
    On this ride, I often feel alone
    sometimes it hurts deep in my soul
    I give you my all with a smile each day
    help me understand what makes you stay away
    From this black woman who has so much to give
    I have scars from yesterday but still I live
    Each day is fresh, bright and new
    I wake up believing God's gift to me is you
    Though I don't understand this game we play
    I strive to one day have you with me to stay
    But one day my passion for you will fade
    And on that day I will slowly..walk..away

    Awesome!

    Awesome!

    ...the power that we possess...the Black Woman...the beginning and the end...the God given power that we were given...to walk away...

    this is just one of the greatest poems i've ever read.

    Why thank you Chevron. It's amazing to me that we can be gentle as a dove and fierce as a lion at the same time!
