    To Be A Women


    The ways of silence the tenderness of love,
    Sacrifice I cried in the name of love.
    Burning sorrows upon the night,
    through the rain and the storm,
    I continued to stay strong.
    One sided love often knocks at my door.

    The strength I pledge never to give all,
    be able to hold back,
    the pain shall not destroy,
    the amount which is bonded upon my heart.
    Change is going to come as I pray through the night.
    Silently I cry my self to sleep, I wait upon
    the stars until my King shall appear.


    Oh who are thou who cries beyond the dark,
    Thy heart that searches for the soul,
    that continues to lean toward the dark.
    Oh thy lonely the mystery of thou self.
    I find discontentment when I am a lone.
    I sit upon the night repressing the empty inside.
    Why oh Why is this majestic?
    of a emotions tears me inside?

    I ask of thee the torture I feel,
    Is it lonely are is it not knowing one that lives within.
    Repression of a forgotten heart,
    Why do I fear to reach out.
    When there is no lonely I run in hide.
    I cry the sounds of the sparrow,
    when the dove surrounds my head.



    Love thy self the doves sings,
    as the sparrow sits in gloom,
    Know thy self the dove speaks in silences,
    as the sparrow continues to cry the same sound.
    Spirits of freedom awaits you at your inner door.
    The sparrow sits an mopes ,
    as the dove sings the songs of rejoice.
    Validation comes with self,
    As the dove flaps its wings,
    Rise in the name of self.
    The sparrow runs away.

    Thy diamond lace, magnificent powers,
    Cosmo that surrounds the leaf of thy wing.
    Constancy of thunder,
    flashy storm below thy root.
    I am the sacred stem of thy head,
    Perfection of thy rose. I thou mist of tears,
    I the calm of love,
    Whispers of God love.


    I the women of thy kings temple,
    Shall always be his inspiration,
    Let not thy left hand defend thy right.
    I shall continue to be your light.

    My heart beat the
    understanding of the Creator.
    My feet is the passage of righteousness .
    My tongue speaks the words of resurrection.
    Be still through the darkness.
    Humble through the noon



    I exhale the universe upon my lungs,
    I wake the angels with the stroke of love,
    I cry for the universe to unite in love,
    I sing of the doves that fly upon mans head,
    I cry the resurrection of the giving heart,
    I rise to the stars with great love,
    I exhale the universe and the creatures of God,
    I multiply the children of Gods great love,
    I sit among the rocks as they sing rejoice,
    I lye upon the rivers, as they rise in Gods name.



    Thou eyes will be the coming of the lord,
    Thy hands shall be the soil that makes great men,
    Thou strength shall be of the rock.

    The crying mountains that stand tall,
    I rise in the name of women; I cry no victim song,
    My sister lean your back upon me, the rivers will open.
    As we carry the cross, walking the sea,
    As Jesus the love within thee, is the love within me.

    I rest my back against my sisters
    She'll secure my right and I here left
    the cross is heavy but her love is strong
    together we move forward
    with our eyes upon his throne
    determine not to fall
    but if one slip
    extended hands shall form
    together we will overcome
    together we shall rise

    Through love I pray the bonding within the cloak of sisterhood.
