    You ask, Who Am I ~~
    ....to you....I say...

    - I AM N2 -

    A confident black woman, I Am
    Ever stop and wonder why?
    Because I speak and acknowledge
    you each and every time you
    read -- or pass me by...

    A strong black woman, I Am
    Care to know what I know?
    My assertiveness and inner strength
    are present and always shown...

    A serious black woman, I Am
    Do you see me holding down my fort?
    Watch as I slip on my business suit,
    when I come off of the court...

    A soulful black woman, I Am
    Can you see anything I hide?
    No, I'm versatile- it's a fact
    that you can't touch me; I have
    so much more than pride...

    A knowledgeable black woman, I Am
    Do you know what's so crazy?
    I speak up for my own,
    your opinions, you see, they just don't phase me...

    A self respecting black woman, I Am
    Betcha' you didn't recognize?
    I've got myself as my own #1 fan
    ...only want, but don't need the
    strength of a black man...

    A true black woman, I Am
    Ever stop and wonder how I play the game to win?
    Strong from the start-- to make it worth
    the while all the way through to the end...

    and I am
    ......I Am
    .......I AM A BLACK WOMAN

    All these things are the sum of my whole
    you'll find out as you read more
    of N2urSoul
    The next time
    we cross paths you won't have
    to guess who am I -- figure out who you are
    in reference to me
    cause you have now been enlightened
    and told so cleverly

    not conceited...

    ...BUT CONVINCED

    i like a woman who know who she is
    a strong, Black woman
    handling hers
    who know how to give
    LOVE
    RESPECT
    and support
    if need be
    espousing knowledge
    to help her family see
    the lighter side of a darkened path
    offering a hand
    or, simply, a laff
    babygurl won't hang you
    out there...in the cold
    she broke it down easy
    she's N2urSoul.

    speaking the words.
    {her words}

    peace.
