    Who Am I
    A lost soul
    on earth
    desperate to
    give birth
    to the life
    and love
    deep rooted
    internally

    attempting to be
    the woman
    I AM
    destined
    to be

    people
    criticize
    belittle
    diss'courage me

    wish they
    understood
    me the...

    simple
    complex
    quiet
    giddy
    loving
    sensual
    sexual
    Me...

    want to be
    loved for me
    unconditionally
    Not for what
    YOU want me to be
    Just because
    I'm different
    doesn't mean
    I'm strange
    look at yourself
    maybe YOU
    should change

    "Not strikingly beautiful
    with flawless skin"

    for you to
    judge
    would be a
    SIN

    for the beauty
    I possess
    comes from within
    So after few
    conversations
    it seems we
    don't click...
    have patience
    LEARN
    what makes
    me tick

    there's only one
    way to find

    listen
    probe

    get into
    my mind
    and you
    may find
    a

    Treasure...

    afri

    loving your work
    i don't know you personally
    but from what you write
    there seems to be alot of people hatin' on you

    jealousy is a mutha
    ain't it

    don't let NO ONE stop your dream
    NO ONE

    you're too strong and they can't handle it
