You rather a woman who
opens her legs instead of
her beautiful mind
A woman taught to shut her mouth
along with her dreams & ambitions
that woman would be
too dangerous for society but,
could you Imagine . . .

What,
You think I'm a fool-
You think because
She only offers her time
When the moonlight
Substitutes for the sunlight
I'm being used --
Not Appreciated ,
Undervalued,
Ask yourself-
Have you ever seen a star
During the day,

--Let's get lost in the Cosmos

Tell Me
Why Do Princes
Risk Their Lives To Save Princesses
In Whom They Have Never Met,
Do You Believe In Blind Love
Yet . . .

No One Person Holds Real Value
Nor Is That Significant To The Planet
But, Through The Eyes Of Another
Also, Having No Real Value
Nor Significance
Will See You As Priceless
And There Is Where
You Will Find All The
Significance & Value
You Will Ever Need...

8am
As the Sun
Sunkisses your face,
While the birds sing lullabies
In early morning
I watch you while you sleep
As peaceful as you'll ever be
During the day
At times I turn your alarm off
Just so you can chase your dreams
A little while longer,
Or maybe so I could just
Stare at my dream girl
Dreaming of everything
She's ever wanted
Perhaps
I'm just selfish
Love Is Addictive

Understand My Tan Is Not
To Go Unnoticed
The Melanin In My Skin
Drips Honey When The Sun
Kisses My Face
With The Gentlest Of Lips
See I'm Golden
& These Hips,
Well,
God Made No Mistakes
When He Went To Create
Black Women
And If My Curves Don't
Curve Your Enthusiasm
Then Fine,
I Know It Curves His
See My Beauty Is Mine
& My Confidence
Is A Product Of That Beauty
So When I Strut
I Demand My Attention
& I Don't Need Your Respect
But I'll Take It
Regardless . . .
TRIBUTE TO FEBRUARY
SHELBY MATIAS Jan 2019
I Think The Wind
Stole The Stars From Your Eyes
Because Your Smile Is A
Distant Memory,

& Now All I Am
Is Lonely . . .
