    In the midst of a metamorphosis
    I bask in the sunshine of poetic spiritual bliss

    once was broken
    future looked bleak

    now a woman of substance
    and not afraid to speak

    on love
    spirtuality
    and the way a QUEEN
    should be treated

    in this life by a MAN...
    my spirit will NEVER be defeated

    this fight is not even mine
    it started long before my time

    I've overcome obstacles
    gained internal strength
    and power

    blossoming...
    into a beautiful flower

    It was Afridancr who endured the
    pain...
    she's left to return under a new
    name

    some already know me as this
    but I'd like to share with the fam in my

    Metamorphosis

    victim 2 survivor

    hater 2 lover

    disobedient 2obedient

    insecure 2 confident

    slacking 2 completely loving self and GOD


    new lease on
    life
    love
    God and
    everything in between

    call me

    Aminata
    an Afrikan Queen!


    *Aminata is a West Afrikan name that means *good dancer*. For those of the Muslim faith, you may know that Aminata was also the mother of Muhammed. On a continuous journey on more detailed, thorough meaning of the spiritual side of A ME nata

    If anyone knows of any sites/books they can refer...:rolleyes: I've searched and found nothing. Some of the books I've seen doesn't even have the name Aminata listed.

    From the Congo to the nile into the middle east region throughout the diaspora and into New York spread the genetic compositions that allow you -still, to see yourself. Amon. Salaam. Hotep. Peace.

    Oh yeah, the post was tight, but you knew that already.
