    What do you see when you look @ me?
    who am I?
    many of the mysteries that lurk
    beneath a gaze of nonchalance you'll never know
    simply know this...
    I am Woman, I am Of all things... I am Blackness

    Rugged texture of locks I wear in my hair
    make people stare when I walk in a room
    like here comes doom
    then faces frown with disgust
    questioning why I must sport such a look...
    Hell, it's culture honey
    ain't nothing dreadful bout it!

    In the uniqueness of my African features I delight
    facade, disguise? None!
    Nothing in my mold did The Creator make european style chile
    although this tone encompasses all spectrum of color
    black, white, brown, red & yella
    the entire human race can be traced to a reflection of my face
    with exactness in Africa, the cradle of civilization
    Within my womb blossoms life from 3-folds of Blackness
    like the very matter of outer space gives birth to
    galaxied, sun, moon & stars in constellations no man can number!

    Sex appeal fills the slightest gestures I make
    the swish of my hips, the way I lick my lips
    voluptious in many ways
    still be not presumptuous, thinking I'm simply for sex
    Sexual, naturally
    but likewise Spiritual and Intellectul
    I'd rather have the fellas intrigued by my Spirit, my Mind
    versus them staring, contemplating whether jelly or jam
    creates the jiggle in my behind

    If what man seeks is an object solely for sexual desire
    then I'm not for hire
    the regard in which I'm held must be lifted higher- Much Higher
    though I'd gladly meet these things for my King
    to birth, cook and clean isn't all that woman means..
    Nor getting dolled up to be a fox that provokes no thought
    Against the box of stereotypes created I rebel!
    With this declaration comes mockery to my face,
    they laugh and hoot to say little lady get back in your place...
    I know what I'm saying
    and understanding who I am
    and I'll be damned if I let them tell or make me otherwise!!!

    Queen Makeda, Nefertiti, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth
    where's the proof?!
    Queen Mother Moore, Angela Davis, Rosa Parks, Assata Shakur
    am I sure?!
    Original mothers great and grand
    aunts, sisters, daughters that span
    from one generation to another stood on front lines
    fighting tooth and nail
    to help entire nations prevail, in the midst of hell
    WELL their essense & reflection is in me
    that's why I ask what you see
    cause evidently you're seeing things
    if all you offer is disrespect to me

    Take a closer look
    open a history book
    do whatever it takes to grasp what you mistook
    to create more love, honor and respect for
    Woman of Blackness

    $$RICH$$,

    Thanks, would like it moved, if you could... cause I'm not technically advanced (did I spell that right?)... I'm still trying to figure out how to work the smiley faces and stuff! (SMILE)

    I see a woman
    who is a gift from the master on high
    to be given to he that is worthy
    to be deemed her King
    You are a most precious jewel
    that must be guarded and cared for
    as well as treasured
    you demand only the very best
    as well as you should
    for you give your all
    every part of you
    and you expect nothing less in return
    so allow me to bow before you my queen
    and acknowledge you for the celestial gift that you are...

    The beauty of the black women is so special, it is sad to see the true meaning goes un notice. Continue to right so we may restore the foundation of unity. Within the realms of unity the mother of the universe carry the light of return.

    "Within the realms of unity the mother of the universe carry the light of return."

    that's deep... so profound... i believe with interaction like this we're bound to unite, reenforcing solid foundations... Our beauty is special... unique... and when we finally stop running from it, and embrace our body, hair & face... we'll be like dang... what was i running for?... i'm... we're absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

    Thanks for the feedback... peace
