    OOPS,
    Is my blackness showing again
    Am I beginning to look like someone you left behind
    A lover a friend?
    Or perhaps I'm reminding you
    Of where you came from?
    OOPS,
    Is my upbringing making you cringe
    Sometimes I don't know where my mouth begins and my mind
    Ends
    I say what I feel
    And feel every thing I say
    I was raised that way
    OOPS,
    Is my woman hood peeking through
    Cause I don't always do what you to tell me to do
    I make you mad,
    Embarrased,
    Upset
    You can't put me on some shelf like a trophy
    There's so much more to me
    OOPS,
    Did i just slam the door in your face
    And OH NO,
    I couldn't mean to throw out your pictures, leaving not a trace
    Of any memory of you
    I do what I wanna do!
    Remember that next time you wanna make somebody over
    Lay down, stand up, bend over
    Love me for me or nothing at all

    That was a very strong and poetic statement. You make me proud of who I am, when you are proud of who you are. We owe noone any apologies for our existence.
    You deserve the Love, Praise and Respect you recieve.
    Thank you for being who you are
    and unapologetic for your strength and independence.

    Thank you every one for such a postive response. This was kind of spur of the moment so I didn't know how it would go over. Thank you

    This is very nice. Nothing like a ladie letting her womenhood peek thru. It is wrong for anyoneto change your character. Never change. To be spontanious is bliss. Killing a common day, is the thrill of life. As your life unfolds, you will incounter those who try and tweek your fine. But to change little things so the heart will ring is OK in my mind. Compromise is the adjust of life, but compromise doesn't mean end your ambition.
