    They once where Queens

    Queens they once where
    Now subdued to
    ******* and hoes
    Dancing in music videos
    Shedding of cloth dancing
    Almost naked
    Looking like women
    On street corners
    Selling themselves for less
    Then they are worth

    Sending subliminal messages
    To little girls
    Telling them
    Be like me
    Dance like me
    Dress like me
    Making them forget
    Their full potential
    Cause it’s not needed

    They where once Queens
    Sitting on thrones
    Commanding armies
    We gladly submitted
    To her royal ways
    Knowing that she
    Would show us
    Strength
    Love
    Divinity

    She was Isis
    Better known as Sheba
    Better yet Makeda
    She was Nefertiti
    Nefertari
    Cleopatra
    Candace
    She was Nandi mother of
    The warrior prince
    Shaka Zulu
    She was Amina Queen of Zaria

    Living to their full potential
    Leading people to prosperity
    Victory
    And abundance
    Women of power
    Queens to the fullest
    Prostitutes to none
    But it’s a shame
    How women today
    Forgot their ways

    How sad it is
    Seeing beauty
    Taking a role
    To the back seat
    How MTV
    BET
    VH1
    Slowly raped their minds
    Not showing women of power
    Like Condilisa
    Oprah
    And Hillary

    Life has more substance
    When women know their worth
    Standing here
    Longing for my queen
    Only to be subjected
    To images on TV
    That life imitates
    Making women less
    Then queens

    But never forget
    They once where Queens
    And soon they will be again
    Once they realize
    Their true purpose
    On this earth
    When Queens arise
    And walk up right
    I, man will bow…

    They once where Queens

    Oh my, you spat a boatload of sad 'truths'. Surely Queendom is only a touch away...with the application of the mind and the guidance of a higher power. You scribed this so passionately. Good to see you discern what a Queen and a ho3 is:spinstar:

    I can only speak from the heart and being a father of a 10 year old girl I think about these things.

    Thanks for the love I am humbled.... In the words of a Taalam Acey "Poets are closer to Muhammod, Budda, and Jesus then Preachers!" I am only speaking of what I know and see....

    I loved yr honesty of this.
    It's so hard not to look at Tv and these same images everyday
    and not be offended. Even though, I know that's not me, but
    it's some1 else's sister,daughter,niece,etc.
    I love this.
