    i was brought up on self-respect,
    my momma always told me to respect myself,
    and these brothas keep on tryin me like
    they dont know what NO means,
    thinkin imma give in to their immature ways,
    flashin money doesnt do anything for me
    i'm not for sale
    and youd think their daddys
    taught them how to respect a female
    no lessons taught of a woman worth,
    so now they walk around treatin good women like dirt,
    and good women letting them(why)
    some feel that they have to settle
    afraid that if they wait for love
    they'll be waiting forever
    (why)some insecure and senseless of their own beauty
    thinkin that the only way to be loved is by giving up the booty
    (why)some dont give themselves a fair chance
    instead of waiting their turn they choose temporary romance
    but me
    i was brought up on self-respect
    my momma always told me to respect myself
    growing up my mom made sure i knew my worth
    she always told me never to let a guy treat me like dirt
    i was taught that the only way of respectig others was by respecting myself
    and besides letting just anyone in could be bad for my health
    so ladies..... ladies please respect urself!

    Words to live by for sure. Respect should be a given, but since it's often not, sometimes you've just got to let them know, that you know your own worth. Loved this scribe.

    Preach on...

    <fades in>

    so many women are unaware of their own worth and look for others to validate them, when if they just pay closer attention to self and less attention to what society views as beautiful or worthwhile, they will see that they are gems buried in an endless desert that kicks dirt on them in order to pretend that it (the desert), is a beautiful ocean, and they (women) are the dirt tossed to-and-fro by the winds of change.

    Enjoyed your expression!

    keep the words moving

    peace&1luv

    I agree with this here so much...too many females are settling instead of making others realize their worth. You have to demand respect in this world, otherwise, and sometimes even then, you won't get it.
    We really do have to stop settling, cause as long as we do, they will continue to act a fool. If we don't settle, then eventually they will have to step up to our level. But all of us havent settled though...me, I'm still waiting.

    a womans worth

    i'm glad to see that you ladies understand where i'm coming from. and like lynne said if we stop settling then men will have no choice but to get on our level. we are what we present ourselves as. if we wanna be respected we have to present ourselves in a respectful manner, if we want a man with certain qualities then thats what we should look for and we shouldnt settle for less. so thanx ladies glad to know we see eye to eye and that just like i you too know your worth!!!!!
