    she woke up
    ripped the shackles that had imprisoned her spirit
    winged her of the power
    to allow her mind and body to roam free

    she couldn't understand why it happened that way
    ...what had happened that day

    she didn't comprehend her purpose
    as she walked away
    as she walked away
    she shed herself of yesterday's baggage
    that damaged her crown
    that dragged her down
    ball and chain
    that wore her down
    not to mention the pain
    of constant beat downs

    but today
    but this day

    she woke up
    ...raised up
    out of neck deep gutters
    that threatened to engulf her
    to swallow her
    to destroy her soul

    i'm told
    the grass always look greener
    on the other side

    i'm told
    that once you lose respect
    you have only your pride

    i'm told
    anytime is aiight
    on the streets of the hood

    i'm told
    tomorrow isn't promised
    but today is good

    i'm told

    SHE WOKE UP.

    Onelove.

    $$RICH$$ man...i remember 40, kid.:) it's all good...but the best is yet to come.

    Shaneak...thanks for the love...but, no, this is not the conclusion to "when" although i can see why you would think so. unfortunately, she's still in the waking stage...not completely UP yet.

    Cindy...unfortunately, there are too many women--and some men--who have endured much more than they should have had to. life was meant to be enjoyed...not endured. keep GOD close. the rest will fall into place.

    peace&manyblessings.
