I am uniquely and unequivocally me. A mother of two sons, a wife, a caregiver, woman of God, not necessarily in that order. God is definitely the head and first of my life, because with out Him I would not be. I have been writing poetry since I was able to spell words and read. Most times as an outlet for what ever situation I was in at the time. My deepest desire has always been to write a story that will help someone;s journey be a lot easier. To heal the world with words, not destroy it with them. This is my journey to my destiny.
Do you really see me and what is hidden behind my smile?
Do you really care about the heart that beats inside?
So what if I’m not hood, or ghetto as some
So what if I’m overweight and my hair is short
Don’t hate on my upbringing because it’s not what you may think
Who cares if I get my hands and toes done?
For none of that stuff makes up the woman that lies within
The big dark brown eyes, the little ears, the pretty smile
The voluptuous breast, the big round booty, oh you feel me now
Not the long, thunderous brown legs, fingers or this big old nose
None of these things help to make up this woman’s worth
What lies within is a heart of gold
That would give you the world on a silver platter
If you believed in her and chased stars with her
Watched sunsets, and sunrise, listened to poetry, and Mozart
If you could cater to some of her needs at least pretend to care
Be her lover and her friend; tell her jokes even when darkness ends
Whisper sweet nothings just because, say I love you and not fear you’d fall
Take her to heaven at least once a week, treat her special and call her friend
Love her like she’s the only one, and hold her tight when were done
Pray with her, eat with her, sleep with her, and dance until morning comes
If only someone saw what lies within.
