    @ Destee

    I am not happy to see that I am not alone
    I don't want other ebony queens to sing this song
    I wish we all had no troubles
    and no one to burst our childhood bubbles
    however that is not how life goes
    as our troubles mount our spirit will grow
    and we have our spirit from God
    even in the time of Amastad
    God sits high and he looks down low
    he made all of us and he enjoys this show
    because we are made to help each other when our resources are low
    God has used us to help each other flow
    and sometimes what we reap is what we sow
    what we get is what we give
    whether live is good or not we must live
    God is our day that walks us through the night
    he gives us each other to go our plight
    Ebony Kings and Queens at work or school or play
    let love each other so our help will stay
    Let God love you all you must do is pray
    Pray for those who have gone astray
    because they will come back some other day,
    one day they will see
    that all you have to do is pray and you will be free
    love has no color so people say
    why are the non ebony sisters getting all the play
    if all one needs is a soul mate to love
    and pretend there is no color involved
    if that were so
    Ebony queens would not be left
    as a past fixture upon a shelf
    If color was blind why are so many Ebony Queens left behind?

    How The Devil Works...

    Abisha: Glad to see the poetess still hard at work! Talked with Delores T. the other night, and I had to put this one in here for us to consider.

    Satan will NEVER show you WHO God REALLY is! If you are hurting, the Devil whispers: "God doesn't care about you!"

    If you are striving for His best, Satan whispers: "You only serve God for what you can get!" (ala Job).

    If you are standing in the blessing, Satan whispers: "You did it ALL by yourself!"

    If you are waiting for the blessing, Satan whispers: "It will NEVER come!"

    When you THINK you are alone, Satan whispers: "YOU are the only one serving God!" (Ala Elijah)

    But you are never alone! God will ALWAYS have your back!

    WHY then, do we have trouble? Check out Job! It's because our Lord is BRAGGING ON US! :love:

    OFF THE HOOK

    MIKE ALL I CAN DO IS LAUGH BECUASE SOMEONE THAT IS GOING THROUGH AND THEY READ OUR POEMS, THEY WILL BE COMFORTED FOR SURE, I LOVE YOUR POEM MIKE. I AM NOT ALONE AT THIS TIME BECUASE GOD HAS BLESSED ME KNOW, HOWEVER IT WAS NOT ALWAYS THAT WAY AND I WANTED TO SHARE WITH OTHER BLACK WOMEN WHO MAYBE IN WONDERMENT ABOUT LIFE AS FAR AS WHY OTHERS MAY BE CHOSEN OVER THE BLACK, AND LET THEM KNOW THEY ARE NOT ALONE, SOME PEOPLE FORGET ABOUT THEIR PAIN IF THEY ARE NO LONGER IN PAIN, JUST BECAUSE I HAVE A MAN NOW DOES NOT MAKE ME FORGET WHAT IT WAS LIKE NOT TO HAVE SOMEONE AND TO WONDER WHY EBONY WAS NOT THE CHOICE PICK. THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE IN OTHER STATES MAY NOT KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT, BUT TO THOSE THAT RESIDE IN CALIFORNIA KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.

    PEACE

    THANKS FOR RESPONDING TO MY POEM MIKE :)
