    REVERENCE




    Statuesque, brown beauty
    a body unlike no other
    style and grace unmeasured
    a loveliness supreme
    men of the world revere
    every continent proclaim
    there is nothing like the essence
    of a black woman
    her beauty........reigns
    her strength........ageless
    her appeal..........timeless
    there is none like......
    the Queen of the Nile
    brown beauty
    African Princess


    The Black Woman

    black women...

    Through the darkened days
    Of slavery times

    You survived

    Through the aftermath
    Of civil war
    …civil rights struggles

    you survived

    Through racial hatred
    And self-imposed
    Superior attitudes of others

    You stand tall

    Through derogatory treatment
    Of YOU by US {your brothaz}
    You stand
    Tall…
    Proud…
    Strong…

    You have survived…
    All the trash talking
    Woman bashing
    Sticks and stones
    The world could hurl at you

    With pride

    You have survived
    The many heartaches
    Mental anguish and pain
    My brothaz have inflicted on you

    With pride

    You survived
    Much too much to surrender now
    You have proven yourself to be
    Worthy

    With a forgiving heart
    A mind apart from the stench
    Of the lowliest soul

    You walk

    Chin uplifted
    Shoulders back
    You walk with pride
    Exhibiting strength

    Your eyes are clear
    Your mind…free of bondage to others
    For you know who you are
    My Strong, Black Sistahz.

    I salute you

    SING THE SONG OF SISTA'S

    SING THE SONG OF SISTA'S
    WHO PROCLAIM ALL DENIED TO THE MISTA'S
    KNOW, THAT FOOLISH PRIDE IS LEFT ASIDE
    WE QUEENS OF THE NILE DO ABIDE
    OUR AGELESS BEAUTY NO ONE CAN HIDE
    THE RHYTHM OF OUR WALK
    THE QUICKNESS AND WISDOM OF OUR TALK


    SING THE SONG OF SISTA'S
    WHO LONG HAVE BEEN IGNORED
    WE STILL REMAIN BOTH STRONG AND TRUE
    AND WE SHOULD BE ADORED!


    BLESSINGS ON YOUR HOUSE MY SISTA FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL
    AWE INSPIRING POEM!
    THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME SOMETHING SWEET TO WAKE UP TO.
    GOD BLESS ME AND YOU!:heart: lb(C)

    there is much to be said about the inner beauty and grace of a woman who is sure of her place on this earth in spite of what life deals her and challenges her with....

    and in all the misery and hardship, it is her beauty and grace that will shine for all to see..

    a beautiful piece....

    i exalt you, queen

    she's incomparable
    the queen
    her queendom is serene and those who enter
    have never seen the infinitude of mind
    body
    and soul...
    she makes me whole like seven
    i see brown heaven through her eyes..
    she's my wisdom
    as i dance to the rhythm of life
    will u?
    say u will be my wife, goddess
    i'm your friend, your man, your brother
    your lover
    and beside your throne
    there is no other....

    thanx e.

    i love the black woman.
