Conflicting views have created anomalies within your perceptionYou’ve been pushed this way, that way ever since conception

I’ve watched as you wondered aimless and seeking purpose

You’re afraid and bury all your true thoughts beneath your surface

Society has created roles and forces you to play a part

Now you are caught between listening to them or following your heart
You were raised to believe that a woman belongs in the kitchen and must submit to a man

But the media tells you that you can do everything a man can

And this affects your views on feminism

Wondering if you are in competition with every human being with a stick between their legs

Can you challenge a man without being called bitter or someone filled with hate

Or face the stereotype of being labeled an angry black woman

Or just a woman who doesn’t know her place

On the other side time forces you to run another race

Conceive today or wait till it’s too late

No one asks if you want children or a family

It’s what should be done by a girl raised properly
You are limited in terms of expressing your sexuality

Showing experience and preference is referred to as promiscuity

Boys will be boys and girls are just their toys

Satisfaction shouldn’t be your concern but his

“Don’t forget you have a hand” is the only advice from your peers

You no longer understand what is meant by commitment

You are to believe in love but hear the word “divorce” after every statement
Denied opportunities because of what you are

Paid less, taunted more and held back because of who you are

You graduate and go unappreciated

Instead people care more about who you maybe might have dated

Sisterhood sounds like a myth of yesteryear

Too many females fighting with you and ready to compare

No one is happy and celebrates your victories

All you hear is “what makes her special, who is she”
Community has changed and the world has become its worst

There’s no longer a desire to do good, there’s no longer that thirst

You are described as hot or sexy and you respect that

I miss the days when women were pretty and beautiful and could only accept that

Your value is lost in this modern era

Your opinion and voice are considered noise and an error

You forgot your worth and that you deserve better

More than rape and a man who beats you

More than settling for others expectations

More than being an after thought in a conversation

In the midst of the spark, we consumed too much and got lost in the fumes

Now high off our own supply, tripping off the chemistry of us

We are on our love ecstasy, we’re in deep

Depths the ocean couldn’t reach, the stars couldn’t cover and only God’s love for us can compete
You take me to places within myself I didn’t know could exist, 

I am afraid to lose myself in you

I’m afraid to give you the best parts of me

Because you’re the only one to ever want to love me

Because of the potential cuts laying in wake of my shattered glass heart waiting for you to take
I can already picture the scars and slits as you try piece me together

You are yet to promise forever but I can already see it in your actions

The way your hands say you love me and the volume your silence speaks

You are yet to promise forever but I can see it in your actions

I can see, you notice me
If this were the real me and you, would we let this moment take place

This temporary okay mistake, I hope you know I don’t usually do this

On introduction night, fantasize about reproduction and white picket fences

I’m not even sure I can pronounce your name, wait, do you even know mine?

Oh God, you take me to places within myself I didn’t know could exist

Am I wondering too far 

or maybe moving a little too fast, do you need a chance to catch up… 

So we can come together… And there after you can catch your breath.
Eyes closed and face to face, I can tell its too late to walk away

Close enough to lock lips, close enough to whisper words that matter but not close enough for us to share the secrets we hide

For you are a stranger I just met, barely a friend, now a lover, maybe a life partner or maybe just not yet.
We don’t know who we are, for we are still finding each other

We don’t know who we are, for I don’t know who I am

We don’t know who we are, and tomorrow I will take the time to find myself a little more 

but right now I accept right now, I’m supposed to be with you

Because I know, for the first time in my life, I’m with someone who feels like I do.

BlogMy focus is lost on you
Your everything consumes the little bit of something I have
The something I call a soul
You swallow me whole and refuse to let go
I see the sea of pain in your eyes
from guys who were just practice
I hear the roars of your fears as they whisper
“Casanova. Playa. Liar” and that other adjective
But like the goddess you are, you tame them
Like the real woman you are, you made mistakes and you own up to them
Like the angel you are, unseen by many
There are levels to you, too much, they’re plenty
A kind heart with a devils stare
A defense mechanism set to “I don’t care”
A cynic who believes in love but not that it’s meant for her
Grown but filled with child like, fairytale type fantasies of romance
Desires of a man who asks you out to dance
You want fire place love making, backseat back breaking
Nights out, under the stars that are breathe taking
But you don’t think a man like that exists, so you don’t bother waiting

You’ve had to settle for less in the past
You’ve had to compromise your standard to accommodate others
Sometimes self righteous and sometimes abuse lovers
I wonder what you’d say if I told you I love you despite your history
What would you say if I said I forgive you for not acknowledging me
Who would you be if you let go of the hurt and let someone in
Let someone know the parts you hide
The truths, the lies and the in betweensSecrets buried deep inside
The things you never let come to light

I’m trying to say I see you in all your glory
But I also want to be the man who accepts your shame
You are in your own league and deserve of man who brings something to the table
I don’t have much, but I’m willing and able
I’m saying I see the person you keep locked behind fake faces and roaring laughter
I’m saying, she’s the one
Yes her, the girl I’m after
