Black monarch, fly away, fly away

The world we live in isn’t a safe place

Black monarch, fly away, fly away

You came too soon, come again on another day

You are world leaders without titles

Young revolutionaries considered political rivals

The world goes to hell because those in power do nothing for the people

So it’s left to little girls with big afros to address the matters and raise awareness

Left to academics who become prison regulars and recognized social saints

College residence heroes circulating ranting videos refusing to stay around sexually violent unquestioned criminals

Innocent till proven guilty but allowed to torment the victim

Bare breasted protesters carrying more than big mounds are ridiculed for standing for something

While others fall for everything, every false promise, political garbage, recycled nonsense and repeated slogans

Democracy has become a synonym for capitalism

Corruption undermines state legitimacy and service delivery

Issues relating to those in lower tax brackets are marginalized

Education is said to be the key to success yet it has become a substandard

Students march, assemblies held, agreements made, all forgotten with little effort

Monarchs who continue to fight, are made martyrs

Categorized as trouble makers, attention seekers

Freestyle flowing, pen to paper word forming and note singing individuals are labeled talentless because their words voice the thoughts of the people

The ones treated unequalled

So they go silenced behind walls of ignored but deserved cries for impeachment

Ex leader becoming varsity chancellor

If this is an endeavor to produce the next president in a controlled environment

Then I endorse it

I don’t know if this will reach the right eyes

But I know it would open more minds if someone famous wrote it

Mama said, black monarch, fly away, fly away

The world we live in isn’t a safe place

Black monarch, fly away, fly away

They’ll hate you, get away, run away

Do you know how to touch a girl?Have you affected her so much that she can not stop thinking about you?

Save me the details as to whether it was at the movies, your room or in the back of a car.

I just want to know if you have truly ever touched a girl?

Girls are special, they are not animals that focus on the physical.
She loves it when you kiss her on her neck, slowly hold her hands and giggles when you pin her down on the bed.

She likes it when you caress her face, when you run your hand through her hair and enjoys it when you place your hands around her waist

But while you are doing all this, do you think you are touching her?

Do you reach inside to her inner most parts?

To engrave your name across her heart
Just like God seeks to protect our hearts and save our souls, we should try to touch the heart and soul of the girl we want to love, claim to love or cherish with our whole heart.

To get through to a girl, you have to acknowledge her instead of notice her.
Do you understand that fragile is not her definition but an attribute she possess

Like a wine glass, she can be strong and fragile at the same time

Designed by her maker only to contain the contents she was made for

Would you buy a Bugatti to use as a storage room, filled to the door

Glass can be cold at the touch but warmed from the caress of a patient hand

If she was broken in the past, then you need to be a loving man

A man who understands that emotion is her portion, love and money are her ambitions

And even though she can on her own, she just needs you to fill her up and sip away the overflow when it gets too much
She is more than her appearance, and may or may not know it but still give her the reassurance

Use words such as beautiful and lovely sometimes,

Do not let the worlds standard uses of the words hot and sexy blind you to the fact that she is not a decoration but a vessel that embodies a soul that wishes to complete you
She is greater than sex or an object available merely to fulfill your desires

So note that intimacy is not always sexual

And sexual is better when consensual

But while we’re on the topic

May I shift your attention

A real man always lets her cum first

Satisfy her and she’ll quench your thirst

She does not seek perfection

She only requires her brand of affection

Whether it be slow and steady, rough and heavy or love of little words but filled with meaningful actions

A love that will bring her satisfaction
It is easy to touch her body, the challenge is touching her soul

Being the half that makes her whole

Every woman is unique, so what each requires is different

The only constant is that they need someone willing to put in the work

Someone who will make them feel enough

Irregardless of shape, size or ethnicity

So before you rush to touch her body

Learn how to truly touch a girl
