    Taking Back Her Life


    I'm that woman who took back her life
    when my heart and soul
    was imprisoned by a mental knife
    he broke down my self-esteem
    but I was weak and didn't give a ****
    you know what I mean?

    I'm that woman who took back her life
    I awakened and looked back on my past
    and knew it was time
    for this womam to get off her ***

    Putting together the puzzles of our lives
    looking back on the motherland
    soft-spoken women, mothers and wives
    realizing I'm the woman in demand

    And what give me that status?

    I'm strong, intelligent, independent, and I educate
    I'm stimulating, intoxicating and addicting..
    can you relate?

    I'm that woman that sets her own path
    taking life in strides..
    yes..I have did my math

    He slandered me with his eyes
    calling me ***** and hoe..
    and I still rise
    so welcome to my show

    Embrace my flow
    reconize me, applaud me
    taking back my life
    because God gave me the strength
    for that I will never again stoop below

    Reconize the title
    "Taking Back Her Life"
    and remember the definition
    because this woman here
    praise all the women
    that are on the same mission

    recognizing...

    applauding your strength. so many women--and men--get stuck in neutral and accept whatever is given. thanks for paving the way for so many others to follow.

    This is one powerful poem. I'm archiving tonite and this is terrible tight. Glad I ran up on it.
