    When I was younger
    I stayed in the projects right next door to her
    She was a straggler
    Prettiest face and she said something every time you said something to her
    I looked up to her
    She was like my mother
    But something much greater
    She was the lady passing through

    High heeled shoes
    And hair done with the newest do
    She had it going on and was ignore by few
    Men flocked around her, and everybody knew
    She was labeled as the lady just passing through
    The lady passing through

    Nails 6 inches long
    Stealing *****'s men from their home
    Always talking on the cell phone
    And neva a house to call HOME
    She was alone
    Single, and free to roam
    Into YOUR home
    The lady passing through

    She was never labeled with a name
    Just some lady playing games
    A lady that everyone blamed
    Every place was the same
    A lady passing through, THE FLAME!!!!!!!!!!

    18 years old looking about twenty
    Young with no close family
    Just using men for the money
    To stay fresh, and gully
    Quiet yet her mouth was loud when need be
    She was off the chains, too mature to be anyone's baby
    She was just THE LADY
    The lady passing through

    The ghetto named her
    The world looked down on her
    She was just a passer througher
    The fire
    The flame that scared every mother
    She was my sister
    The lady passing through

    She was the lady that looked down on haters
    And made them her motivators
    She was my mentor
    And my sister
    She didn’t care what you said about her
    She was just her
    And if you wasn’t a friend to her, she looked at you as a foe to her
    She was a passer througher
    But she had a great feature
    She was a leader NOT follower
    And I’m proud to say that’s my sister
    Your sister
    And his sister
    The lady passing through…….

    I think I've seen some ladies passing through in my day. I enjoyed the vivid picture that was painted here poet. Nice to read you again.
