    Say what?
    Baby got back?

    Dang Baby got back!

    Yeah and forth to
    she been through
    what she been through

    It was tough it seems
    for her to return to self-esteem
    even though all the men
    wanted to be on her team

    with a face like bang
    and a body like boom
    it would be easy to hang
    with a life filled with gloom

    but when the mirror distorts
    the mind and heart contorts
    superfluous, skin deep beauty
    comes up extremely short

    so when self-evaluation, examination
    surreal discovery and clarification reveal
    that life is peace and love
    and this is how she is starting to feel

    all the whistles and rhymes
    all the cat calls and lines
    scarcely penetrate the sublime glow
    its no longer about the looks for show

    because baby got back
    to being who
    and what
    and how
    and whose
    she wants to be
    and not
    what others see
    baby got back to being free

    free from self-doubt
    and self-loath
    free from living from without
    and fear of being alone
    free from others perceptions
    and persecutions of thought
    free from misconceptions
    and futile battles fought
    free from all that drained esteem
    and returned to real life meaning

    It's made such a difference
    that everyone else
    says...did you see baby?

    Yeah...baby got back

    back to loving herself!

    yup...and brotha is so fine
    a P I M P
    later down the road
    he thinks thas all hes meant to be
    what you say gurl?
    yeah he fine as hell
    sista might as well
    let him have her body
    cause you know they say he a P I M P
    and when he looks at his reflection thas all he can see
    callin sistas out their name
    tryin to keep up with the game
    but if its all the same
    then whos to blame
    when hes lost sight of the man inside
    no more pride
    cause fleeting relationships have no merit
    there is no heart left to inherit
    months of cross examination
    of his own dedication
    to life love and priorities
    yeah brotha still fine...
    now being the man he was meant to be
    rearrange and recalibrate
    the brotha set himself straight
    still bein a P I M P
    Prominent
    Intelligent
    Man of
    Propriety
    no longer chasin after the sista who got back alone...
    he's ready for the Queen to make his house a home
    ******************
    I love that a brotha wrote such a striking piece/peace...tyte as lord knows what :) lol
    flow on brah
