    Right Now

    I won't pretend to Be

    Some Great Woman of Courageous Strength

    for sometimes I feel very fragile and weak

    Coincidently

    Perhaps by saying this

    I have reached the Epitome of What Strength Is

    and all the marvelous things

    that it aims

    To Be

    SOMETIMES, WE STRONG BLACK WOMEN NEED TO KNOW, IT IS OK TO FEEL WEAK AT TIMES. IT IS OK TO TAKE OFF THE ARMOUR AND JUST BE. IT IS OK. IT DOES NOT TAKE AWAY FROM THE STRENGTH IN YOU, FOR IT IS STRENGTH BEING IN THE PROCESS OF BUILDING BACK UP IN OUR WEAKEST MOMENTS;) BEAUTIFULLY SAID!

    (THAT SHOULD BE ON A HALLMARK CARD) lol:laugh:

    Yes, for so long the world teaches us that to admit weakness, is to in fact be weak....only when we mature do we realize that is not true. For we are only mere human beings standing against this big bad world.

    I dont run from my weakness anymore, like I use to. I embrace it, acknowledge it, and develop a way to get stronger...


    Thanks Watz and Cocco!!
