    On the inside cover of Eryakah Badu's Mama's Gun CD (one of the best CD's out there in my opinion), there is a poem Called 'The Warrior's Reminder' that i verlooked so many times. I recently read it and put it on my wall. This poem inspired me to write my own reminder. Read on adnd maybe u to will be inspired. i look forward to u'r response . Peace

    The Warrior’s Reminder
    ~Erykah Badu

    i am awake
    my mind is free
    i am creative
    i love myself
    my willpower is strong
    i am brave
    i practice patience
    i don’t judge folks
    i give, not to receive
    i don’t expect
    i accept
    i listen more than i talk
    i know i’ll change
    i know u’ll change
    i’ll hold on one more day
    i start over when necessary
    i create my own situations
    i am cosmic
    i do not have all the answers
    i desire to learn
    i am the plan
    i am strong
    i am weak
    i want to grow
    i know i will
    i take on responsibility
    i hide myself from no one
    i’m on my path
    warriors walk alone
    i won’t let my focus change
    taking out the demons in my range.

    i am a child of the Most High
    i am here for a divine purpose
    i am a warrior
    i will keep fighting
    i will not let go
    i will not give up
    i do not accept less than the best
    i will not go against my Creator’s plan
    i listen to my heart
    i listen with my heart
    i stay tru to self
    i speak truth to everyone else
    i fight for what i believe in
    i fight for what is right
    i love my people
    i am learning.... forever
    i will not hold back
    i am creative
    i am interdependent
    i accept my blessings
    i learn from my mistakes
    i love fully
    i accept change
    change is good
    i love me
    i am at peace with my environment
    i strive to be righteousness
    i teach the children
    i learn from the elders
    i listen to the ancestors
    i control nothing
    i’m on my path
    i will stay on track
    i am the final goal.

    I am every woman
    I hide words
    I hide pain
    I hide feelings
    from those who will use and abuse
    I hide my true self from those who take advantage
    I am every woman
    When I do open my mouth honesty flows
    Never answering a question with the same
    I thrive under pressure
    Struggling to make ends meet
    I never fall in defeat
    I raise children I never birthed
    with a stern voice and soft hand
    I make my own destiny
    I am the woman who defines me
    I strive to love openly
    I shelter those without homes
    I feed those that are hungry
    I educate the starving ignorant
    I kill those who hate with kindness
    I write of my experience
    I am a poet
    I am me.
