    Woman What is she
    IS she simply candy for your eyes
    is she simply beneath you
    Is she subject to
    your hurtful words your criticize
    Is she just an object for your sexual pleasures
    is her beauty and body how her worth's measured
    does she not have intellect
    or is her only value sex
    is it how tight she can wear her clothes
    or how long her hair flows
    or the weight of her breast and thighs
    or how greatly she can please your eyes
    is that what a woman is
    is that all you think that she has to give
    or is there more
    is there more than what your looking for
    far past what can come to your vision
    maybe its in her thoughts or decisions
    maybe if you would take the time
    just open the book and look inside

    True, the wonders that can be found by looking into a person's heart, mind, and soul. Liked the way you flowed with this.

    Oh my sisters what a cross we bear, I sat before the elders today this subject which came accross the table, the meeting of the minds.
    There is no complimising with a boy if he dose not know how to think as a man, and there is no complimising with a chicken head if she shames the virture of what a real women is, Oh how we feel the scars that comes within the temple we wear, but my blessed sisters there shall be a deliverance
    when the warriors of black women come as one. The sancturary of the true sisters as your self, will rise above the labels that some bring.
    What God has ordained no man shall erase, black women shall
    reclaim her rightful place.
