The experience of a black woman is one that can not be imitated
Although it is not always enough or even always reciprocated
Her heart is full of love, almost bursting out of her chest
And even when it gets tough, the black woman always tries her best
She longs for an equal who shares her level of intellect
Someone to listen to all her problems and attempt to put them in retrospect
The black woman often fears sharing any of her thoughts
For fear of being labeled the angry black woman, which she’s heard lots
Some black men refuse to date a black woman because of her attitude
But thank you to those strong black men that show them so much gratitude
Sometimes the black woman confidently wears her hair natural
The time she takes to detangle each curl is truly admirable
Other times she doubts her beauty as she is surrounded by Eurocentric guidelines
Men gawk at the beauty of those with straight long hair as she stands on the sidelines
Sometimes the black woman adores all of her god given features
But when she sees the women men covet she feels like an ugly creature
The black woman comes in all different sizes, shapes, and color
And instead of black women competing with one another
They must stand together and see the beauty in being black
So that they can truly understand that beauty is not something that they lack
My sisters, all of my black sisters, thank you for making me feel so human
Because no one understands the experience of black woman like a black woman.

Where are we going?
What is for real?
Look inside my heart and u feel the chills.
It's a cold world we live in.
Filled with many villains.
And the heroes don't triumph.
And we give too much attention to Donald Trump.
Feels like were destroying what we built.
Trying to be above the influence like I'm standing on stilts.
I'm trying to change the game like I'm Wilt.
Until the end of my time I'm going to try to answer.
The question of our true existence in other stanzas.
Today's youth is caught up in a fake extravaganza.
Just my thoughts as I sit in class. Be blessed.

I'm scared of the musical taste of this generation.
Now I don't need to haste, with this music.
Cuz I know I have the power to abuse this.
But I'll rather be a nuisance.
And setup an intrusion.
Clear up all the pollution.
Cuz the youths minds are polluted.
Caring more about possessions.
As their minds unknowingly possessed.
Magicians got u hypnotized.
And I criticize, every single lie.
**** people who can't sympathize with this generation.
Thoughts of the day while on Twitter
It starts out as having "fun" and then all of a sudden you are doing more things that you wish to list but secretly of course. He would never go public with you. I guess he will never see you in that way. His touch makes you forget the holy thoughts you guide yourself by. You do your best to contain but it is hard to retain yourself. You want to go there but then you remember you don't even share his last name.
She almost felt used and knew she was doing this for the wrong reasons. #confused #fightinghard #minawestinspired #hewillneverseemethatway #ireallylikehim

What happens when temporary is no longer
When you feel weak without them
Yet somehow stronger
How do we feed the darkness of our pasts
Well i can tell you, easy,
With memories of us staring at ourselves through broken glass.
I can finally say I'm no longer afraid of you or who you'll be without me
Because I finally can see who you've been without
a shadow of doubt overcasting.
You are now who you've always been.
It's just now with some alcohol running rapid through my veins and some tears gathered in my eyes
From staring vaguely into my mind
It somehow all seems clear enough.
I'm no longer pinned.
Blindfolded by one's own fogginess.
A mist that overtook me a year too long to clear.
You are the same.
And no not that cliche ****, the same as every guy,
but you are the exact same reincarnation of my worst fear.
My fear of falling for someone who only had the interests of their own held dear.
Maybe this makes sense to you and maybe this doesn't
and you know what? That's a risk I'm willing to take.
I would rather let these words and phrases pour out of me like an unstoppable hurricane that might drown you,
Than to, for one second longer, let this hurricane continue to destroy me.. *Whatever is left of course.

I got fired last night, the devil tryna take my life.
I think I'm going back to Christ.
Cuz the ******* stealing my thoughts.
So I just purchased a cross, from Ross.
Cuz remember I got fired.
Spent the next severely weeks tryna get hired.
Success is what I desire.
Everyday wake up tired and exhausted.
My soul is busted.
My soul is like a combustion.
Forget about my homies man, I found out I couldn't trust them.
Asked for a place to stay, they asked if I'm selling my J's away.
Until this day, ain't nothing the same.
Lord I get it.
You break a man down, so he knows to stay.
Jesus been paved the way.
I struggle with lots of things, however what all really matters?
Just a story I made up to display the struggles one can endure.
The struggles can overtake what really matters after everything and that's the Lord Jesus Christ.

The feeling of ecstasy.
That feeling when ur next to me.
Our bodies touch, I must be floating on a cloud.
U make me feel aroused.
I'm so high and I'm never coming down.
This Angels got my heart.
This was the plan for the start.
I'm from a different planet, but u done make me apart.
Of ur ways.
I prayed for better days.
But now I'm cool, like Fonzi on happy days.
Hey, what more can I say.
I'm faded by ur love.
Ur scent is so intoxicating.
Ur smile so breathless.
My addictions lose, when I'm with u.
They say the variety the better.
But with u, ain't no one better.
U belong on the the cover of variety.
Ur radiant skin, on display for the world.
The world in my hands, I'll take u wherever.
Rome, Paris. Whatever.
It may take a few years but we'll be there together.
Cuz I feel (eiffel tower) for u.
U had me leanin (tower of Pisa).
Couldn't get myself together, u picked up the pieces.
But ur love was so sweet, like I'm eating Hershey's kisses.
Ur worth it all. I'll even pay ur tuition.
Me and you together.
We will always pass.
But these love stories ****.
So I guess it's f**k u.
A metaphor of being on drugs, it all feels good till the end when ur back to reality.
Just like a new relationship, it all starts good until things get hard and then you call it quits and become enemies.

Your darkest secrets can be shared
And I'll do nothing but shed the kindest light amongst them and cleanse you of any burdens that were abandoned on your shoulders.
I'll do my best to rid you of any marks they left on that sweet, genuine, beautiful soul of yours.
I'll never leave you to fight your demons alone.
On your own,
I promise, for the rest of our lifetime, is something you'll never have to feel.
All in the hopes to one day call you

You are the reason I am so strong,
Why I can withstand any storm.
You taught me at a young age how to love life and adore it all,
The ups, the downs, the heartaches, even the rock bottom falls.

I remember being young and with you on the bridge of San Francisco.
It was freezing, foggy, felt like it was below zero.
But when you held me up to see the world At that moment I knew
You were going to be the only man who could ever pick me up at the moments I needed it most.
My greatest hero, would be you.

You are everything I could have asked for in a dad and more.
God knew you would be the only one who could handle me.
But I'm not sure if you even knew what you were in for.

I look up to you and I'll follow you until the end,
Like the moon guides the tides, As long as you're in my life I know I'll always have a bestfriend.

You have molded my mind and soul
And for that I will be forever grateful.
You are more than a father to me,
*You are everything I've ever wanted to be.

— The End —
