I Stand With Confidence

People treat me like dirt with
Judged envy, but I stand with
Confidence.
People called my beauty 
Ugly of jealously, but I still
Stand with Confidence.
People whisper of my features,
But I still stand with confidence.
A parent tells the truth of my physicals.
She made I stand up.

Melody is His Name

As I hear his voice singing to me
With his sweet songs, my heart 
Begins to melt.
I continue to listen the lyrics within him to let me
Hear behind the music. 
Each note he plays, is the memoirs of our intimacy.
Each sounds he makes, is the response of love he utter His claim to me.
I pray that I don’t lose his tune.
Without his harmony, my spirit would be torn separately by 
His absence.
I want to hear him play his gentle everlasting songs 
For which I desire.
Oh my melody, my love; the wind of my atmosphere,
I beseech you to play and not to cease.
Please play for me.

A Womans Lesson

She journeys through time
As she goes door to door to her past,
And travel miles from miles to her mistakes.
She lands to her affairs
As she tours to the internal misery disease
Called deception that slay her spirit.
She continues to travel 
As she learns about her love of yesterdays
To realize her past is the step to her future.
She is reborn.

Dreams

A lot of mysteries with surprises and fantasies
That comes with vivid images.
I see the possibilities, 
So I continue to go deep to explore.

Forever My Love

Oh my love how my soul yearn for you                                                                                
Oh how my heart beats when you appear                                                                               
I taste for your lips                                                                                                             I embrace your touch                                                                                                          Oh how I feel and drink every inch of your body
When we have our desires to one another                                                                                             
My love I vow to not leave you                                                                                                 
I vow to never wound you                                                                                                    
You are my knight that I have long for                                                                                     
You are my love that I will never let go                                                                         
Because you will always be my first and my eternity                                                                                        
Forever my love.

Triumph

In my hand I have a key
That will open the door
Of the expectations 
For my conquest.
I will continue to walk to the doors
For I will reach my victory.

A Tribute to Black Women

People say she is built with rage and has a 
Heart that is solid as a concrete.
I say there is no fire within her, suffering is within her when she tries to speak 
Her opinions and truths without silence. 

Though she had struggle through her tribulations, 
She continues to stand and walk to her path. 

She is saddened to see her own male species present hate towards 
Melanin women for an exotic taste, especially vanilla.
She's not worried, she knows there are plenty of fellow melanin
That will walk into her doorstep.
She even has a different taste of flavors of her own. 

In this time of civilization, they do not see her as the definition of beauty 
For what they believe, but she does not seek as she continues to 
Wear her curves and her skin proudly.
Humanity tries to deny her radiance, 
Yet she still walks with grace as she 
Swings her hips with pride.
