    People think they know you

    yet they couldn't be far from the truth

    they look at the outward appearance

    and see

    a vision of a very beautiful young lady

    actually beautiful doesn't begin to do you justice

    yet

    there is more

    what they fail to see

    is the depth of your soul

    thinking they have you figured out

    they haven't even scratched the surface

    have they ever perused your mental

    to see just who you are?

    have they explored

    the many chambers of your heart

    to find out what really drives you

    to be the woman you were destined to be?

    when brothers approach

    are they looking at the natural

    never venturing further into the spiritual

    the real essence of who you are?

    do they give gifts expecting

    reciprocation

    or do they play endless mind games

    thinking you are clueless?

    then they really don't know you

    do they?

    For you see they have allowed themselves to be blind

    to what is in plain sight

    they want to be your King

    but they never truly honor you as Queen

    for if they did then they would realize that

    their destiny

    is you

    but instead they never truly walk in the role

    of King therefore they can never claim you as their Queen

    For you are far beyond the ordinary

    far beyond the mundane

    fashioned after the Heart of God

    never to be taken for granted

    never to be shunned

    you command attention

    because of who you are

    so until that King who is worthy

    comes along and kisses your soul

    just know that there is one

    who sees who you really are

    a

    Tantalizing woman of God

    whose persona is

    aromatic

    deserving

    respect

    of

    all

    Every Man's Dream

    But One Man's DESTINY.

    and do they know who you are?
    fearfully and wonderfully made
    carefully woven
    essence unashamed
    do they know who you are?
    with your lips
    you erect demolished structures
    of once majestic architecture
    you breathe and speak truth and destiny and hope
    and rebirth a hopeless future
    do you they know who you are?

    Bishop!-long time no see, lovely read! lovely read!

    Much Love,

    Hi Bishop
    This flow is so lovely and peaceful.
    I can feel how you took the time
    to embrace the heart, so lovingly
    This is just what a woman need to read,
    With hope, faith and trust as her border.
    Waiting for the one who is to be Her King to cross
    And that He would take the time to
    Look within her heart and soul and feel the
    essence of Her the woman.

    Peace~N~Love
