    Its been a while since I’ve hit these threads with my lines
    Been moving through life’s ups and downs and fronts and backs

    Trying to stay focus in order to achieve this and that
    These white folks think they can hold me back
    But a sista like me aint tryin to hear that

    You see Im a starter not a bench rider
    Waiting for my opportunity to bat
    They think they gonna break me well I have news for them
    Their politics don’t faze me
    As a matter of fact

    The more they try to shake me they are only empowering me
    Feeding me the energy to move on to the next level
    My corporate game is better than ever
    I shake them haters off like my finger flicks a feather
    Those blue eyed devils think they are clever

    But I will never, never, never
    Be held hostage to them because I’m not afraid
    And this aint no slave trade where they can just pick
    The black they think is gonna haul the heaviest sack on their back

    If you think your playn’ me, open your eyes
    So you can really see whats going on
    I’m not just a pretty face Im intelligent and strong

    So while your smiling in my face and plotting behind my back
    I have already executed my defense attack

    I know your sad to see the plan you had in store for me
    Did not bring me to my knees nor did it make me miss a beat
    Thought you could make me kiss your feet

    Now look who’s having the last laugh
    Thought you would send me packing my bags fast
    For putting your unprofessional a** on blast

    Did you really think I would just let you handle me
    Like some kind of trash on the streets
    Hope you have learned how easily the tables can be turned

    Maybe the next time you will think before you speak
    Respect is something you earn
    Remember that the next time you try to
    Address Me

    There is this something that brews within us, when someone tries one too many times to put us "in our place". And then, it's like their wrong, fires the spark inside to press onward. This was a powerful piece, and you are a train that won't be derailed, sister. :)

    You know I had had just about enough and
    decided to let it be known. Grant it, I could
    have done it in another way but I did not
    like I how I was being handle so I decided
    to do a little handling myself. Now she's kissing my***.
    Excuse my French. Thank you for those inspiring
    words.

    never said a word to me, but I think alot of them.
    You happen to be one of them. Thanks so much
    for checking out my scribe.
