    Misunderstood is the great black queen.
    loving, but labeled too needy.
    Says what she need and want,
    and told she's selfish.
    Able to raise her children and
    the children of others,
    but told she knows not how too.
    Stands beside her king,
    but told she doesn't support him.

    Misunderstood is the great black queen.
    Warm and gentle,
    but told she cold and hard.
    Able to hold it all together,
    but told she pulls it apart.
    Able to weather the greatest storms,
    but told she is weak.
    Has outer and inner beauty,
    but told she's has none.

    Misunderstood is the great black queen.
    Love, wisdow, supportive, strenght and beauty,
    should be the understanding of the great black queen.
    For these are the qualities from which her greatness erupts.

    that the Queen

    has been misunderstood, is an intregal part of the insidious, systemic approach to the oldest mind game in the book....no power outside ourselves should ever be able to divide us and conquer our perceptions of each other.....

    And there is beauty in us....about us....because of us... and far more to us than meets the eye....

    Poetry is one means by which we re-educate....re-aquaint...reunite....re-dedicate!

    Speak Poetess!
