    So many B words come to mind
    that can be used to describe a sister
    some of them are complimentary, some are
    harsh, but none cause old wounds to blister
    If a sister speaks her mind, it's not a stretch to conclude
    she's smart, you could say she is brainy or bright.
    The sister could be a genius, simply brilliant in fact,
    intelligence doesn't rhyme with itch, that ain't right.
    Now some women speak without thinking first, but
    that's a crime either gender can commit.
    Words like bold, brazen, brutal, or brash are also
    descriptive, but don't make us feel like we've been hit.
    If a Black woman is slow to speak, we can
    actually be bashful... yes a black woman can be shy
    If she's charming, words like beguiling and bewitching
    are easy to say, come on, just give it a try.
    Not just singling out some men, for some women
    also favor this word, using their tongues to attack.
    Instead of this word, let's try to discover some way
    in which we're all beautiful and Black....

    What you speak, is a Natural Fact...
    a Positive B , will outshine the Negitive B ...24/7
    As it takes all kinds to make the world go round...
    it takes all kinds, to keep it turning.
    wonderful piece watz, I felt that one.

    True, queent, it does take all kinds to make a world. And although it can be difficult to be positive, the rewards are there in the end. Thank you sista.

    Yes, there are so many other words a black beautiful woman can be. We must always remember these to keep her beauty prescious and unique.
