    " Venus Envy "




    I wanna re-define women, re-design women
    read these lines women ...
    show me the reason WHY women.
    Press belly buttons and see what happens, rewind women.

    23 lifetimes spent wanting to enchant women.

    Wanting to get inside women the way i've been told I can't get
    inside women --- like Iyanla Vanzant , inside women.


    Being taught that women hold the keys to LOVE itself -
    an embrace that hugs itself ,
    all us little boys w/ only aunts and girl cuzins in the fam
    so we had our image skewed women
    viewed women as someone to soothe women
    stick around if she says " i'm not in the mood " women.

    We were raised thinking that inside females
    lie the secrets to Love and Grace.
    Not just below and above the waist but her presence
    is a gift from on high !!!!

    We were raised thinking that men do women wrong
    so we better keep 'em strong.
    ... raised worshipping w/ no reasoning - just do it.


    BUT love don't live here anymore -
    the rent was late.
    Irritate like forks scrape on dinner plates,
    Incenerate old views.
    Teenage years , room to hold news.

    We learned of Heartbreakers, rump shakers,
    gold diggers w/ 3 pagers.

    At this point in our 23 lifetimes,
    we realize it WAS US who stayed up light nights talkin -
    in parks, neighborhoods walkin -
    speakin of God,Love and our very Sanity OFTEN -
    ............not women -- US.

    The ladies think it's boring now.

    too busy to talk, too mean to reply , too selfish to love.
    But she sexes w/ INDISCRETION,
    guess she wasn't selfish enough ---


    The MAN can be the nurturer -
    and although we still search the earth for HER...

    none of us have VENUS envy - any longer.

    venus envy...

    definitely
    had me hypnotize
    as my eyes
    focused
    from line to line
    my mind
    swirling
    on the concept
    of women swept
    over the coals
    'til old
    attitudes
    change
    and...

    "We were raised thinking that inside females
    lie the secrets to Love and Grace.
    Not just below and above the waist but her presence
    is a gift from on high !!!! "

    funny how our attitudes change over the years...in how we view WOMEN.

    THANKS for the flow.

    thanx

    I hope ya'll don't think I'm a member of the
    He man woman haterz club - LOL

    I just want to address that women in my age group
    are NOT as sensitive and caring as all of us guys
    were told they would be.
    We grow up thinking of what it would be like
    to fall in love w/ that special girl
    but so many of these girls are CRAZY !!!
