    Give me life,
    Reminiscent of the air
    We breathe.
    Bring out the best in me,
    Encourage the way that I feel.
    What is this web you’ve weaved,
    Cause I’m caught up in the
    Serenity of your rapture

    Make me react to your expression
    On every degree,
    Allow the word of my heart to
    Speak love,
    In so doing,
    Recognizing that your love has
    Great value and is reciprocated

    Give me love,
    Understanding beyond that
    Of physicality.
    When you touch me,
    Caress that innermost part of me,
    Grant me freedom from all forms
    Of insecurity

    Bless me with your ancient wisdom,
    Taking my mind and spiritual body
    Back to the plains of the motherland
    Taking my heart of hearts back to a
    Place before we were known as slave

    Stand by me,
    Joined in elemental fusion,
    Like rain falling to earth your mood
    Constantly evolving
    The afrocentricity of your vibe,
    Nonstopping emotions running wild
    Some look at the balance between us,
    Black woman,
    At how fondly I think of you
    And say,
    Taboo

    Written like a love from the soul. Even with all we have been through, we can still be kings and queens in and of ourselves. Beautifully written.
