Someday, Baby

Mama, mama
Will I ever grow up
Like the lady on TV–
She’s strong, proud and tough
Have my opinion respected,
My voice widely heard
You think maybe, just maybe,
“Someday, baby”.

Mama, mam
Will there be a time
When I can open a hospital
And help all humankind
To help all people enjoy life
Whether they have money or not
You think maybe, just maybe,
“Someday, baby.”

Mama, mama
Will there come a day
When I’ll be cloaked all in white
And you’ll give me away
To the man of our dreams
He’ll cherish me so
You think maybe, just maybe.
“Someday, baby.”

Mama, mama
Will I live to see
The day we’ll all be as one
And live in harmony?
Not in fear, but in love
The way God intended
You think maybe, just maybe,
“Someday, baby.”

Shine

Today is the day where I shine-hips as wide as gods eyes and lips as sultry as the way the sun may rise-hints the word shine-So today is the day where I shine-Accepting me for me and putting shame behind-Walking through doors and stopping traffic not because of my figure 8 but because the way lights grow brighter when I walk in the place-Smile is flawless leaving them speechless-So like I said today is the day where I shine-From the arch in my back, the sway in my swagger, the rise of my breast-Not cocky, but sure of myself-When I say shine I use it as a simile or metaphor-To shine as bright as the sun or sparkle like a diamond-Be sure of yourself and confidence you will find it-To know who you are and where you are going-To shine on your own and not give yourself to many-That’s where some get it twisted and there mind is sercombe to hindering-Today is the day where I shine and can’t be compared to any-Not making that mistake by saying any and meaning many-My light shines too bright so therefore I can’t have a clone meaning plenty-Today is the day where I shine if you didn’t hear me clearly-Look deep into my eyes confidence you will find in ME!!!!!

A conversation with love

There is a secret I must tell and hopefully you’ll not come
away from my little truth with fear

For as long as I could remember I have wanted you
I’d see you in the park, outside my car window as I ride by
wishing it were me with you.

I heard stories of you and your adventures the romance you bring
with you. Flowers, kiss expression crossing the lips

whispers of your exploits dance fancifully in my head thinking I wish
it was me.

also did I hear the terror you can bring the pain the heart break.

but for one taste of you I would take all I could take

Then one day you walk into my life like the wind breezing through an open window
I did not know you by your face but I felt you just the same

like a tap on the shoulder from a long lost friend
like the sun slowly rising over the mountains as if not to startle anyone
like the moon brightening the night sky

you were these things to me
in my mind the words, “can I worship you”, played over and over again
my body said make me yours

and I also remember the hurt because “I cried yesterday” when you left
the pain and heartbreak Id heard about was very present
and as heavy as stone tied to ones neck in a lake of water
sinking fast I thought what we had would last

But no we did do something more we came to an understanding that you would always be you that you will never change but for me things never stay the same

We agreed to part ways separating our things walked away with smiles on our mouths and tears our eyes

we said we’d remain friends but we lost contact in the end

Until one day I saw you with her and remember wishing it was me and thinking what happen to the “we” we used to be

that day you saw me too
so now we have this affair that no on knows about
it so wonderful now that instead of telling everyone or getting found out
we go this route

Me sitting here telling how I feel telling you have nothing to fear
when I’m the one who is really scared
like the first day I met you the first time I heard your name
the first time you danced with me in the rain

now that I have said all have it only now that I feel worthy to speak your name

“love”

Heavy Feet and all

You touched me and it was lightening lit both our hearts. Setting fire to our souls this is supposed to be but the passion was ever so strong.

We know it is wrong but what could we do. Stop dead in our tracks, turn run in the opposite direction. How could we when it was not our heads but our hearts and bodies that made the decision.

It was when we became one did I really understand that I should not fight I should go with the flow, ride it out so to speak.

And do believe I tried to prevent it in the beginning, because I knew it would be sinning. But he made me weak
So weak I could not have turned and run if I could my feet being heavy and all

I wonder what mama would say
I also wonder will he want to touch me today

So that can feel that weakness that brings me joy ever so sweet heavy feet and all

So tell me how this could be wrong
I know soon he’ll be gone
He is not mine for asking or the taking
But for he is offering

That I allow the lightening and thunder the weak spell just for a time
Because even if I have a soft heart I believe he is the same trouble in question
You know the heavy feet and all

To You Pops

Waking up at night
Without you by my side
A strong, intelligent and beautiful young boy without a father,
Night after night, I’d cry.

I tried not to think about you,
Because I knew one day you’d come for me.
I accomplished so much as a child,
I wish that you could only see.

God created something beautiful September 27, 1962.
A strong, courageous and beautiful woman…my mom,
The substitute for you.

Since you weren’t there,
She took great care of me.
She was my Santa, Tooth Fairy, pride and joy,
Things you could never be.

I’m not waiting for you anymore.
A long time ago that stopped.
You missed out on the best son,
This is to you pops.

The Mirror

When I look in the mirror,
I think of how much of a fool I was.
I deliberately gave you my heart,
Endlessly you took my love for granted just because.

When I look in the mirror,
I visualize all the pain you put me through.
I could’ve had anybody I wanted,
But I rejected them because I was committed to you!

I think of all the things you told me,
And I wonder if any of it was true?
You hurt me so bad.
I wish I could just do the same to you!

I was once told,
That you don’t realize what you have till it’s gone.
I will never come back to you again.
I gave you too many chanced, I’m done!

Looking at such a beautiful person,
Waiting for all this pain to disappear.
I will never again see such a fool,
When I look in the mirror.

Smiling Because of You

Lying in my bed feeling free.
Released from all my pain,
Finally finished loving someone who never loved me.
Still I smile because wisdom is what I’ve gained.

Unconditional love
Transformed into unconditional hatred.
Again, I have to smile,
Because what I have is oh so sacred.

They say what comes around goes around,
And I’m so tired of waiting for it to be your turn.
Never knew I could be the person I was,
So I had to let that burn.

Realizing I can’t just give up on love,
Throw in the towel and be through.
You on the other hand I can.
Thanks, I’m smiling because of you.

Over You

Roses are dead,
Violets are too.
I’m in love with someone else,
And finally over you.

I played all your self-indulgent games,
Put up with your fucked up attitudes.
Realized I was doing too much,
Never knew I was a priceless jewel.

I did my dirt,
But you did yours too.
You told all your friends our business,
And if you only knew how fake they were to you.

It’s a shame how you’d act towards me,
In front of all your so called friends.
You don’t even know how much you needed me.
I helped you stand!

But I got too much pride for that,
Way too much for you.
So I’m oh so happy,
To be completely, entirely, and absolutely…over you

My Book

I thought you were the conclusion of my book,
But it turns out that you’re only a chapter.
Finally deprived from your lies,
Realizing there’s never really a happily ever after.

Reading you page by page,
Trying to understand the description of your story.
Provoked by your words,
Confused, but still allowing you to allure me.

When you get lost,
You’d repeatedly come back.
But wait, something’s not the same,
Love and attention is what you lack.

I tried to go slow as I possibly could,
But I couldn’t do it, I can’t take this anymore.
I can’t stay in this one spot,
I have to move to the next chapter.

Untitled

I’m sitting here lonely,
Miserable and confused.
Wondering how could I give a nigga my mind, body, and soul.
Ant still I get used?

I keep asking myself why?
Why did I have to be a victim of loves consequences?
Why is it that my heart always has to be so secluded?
Kept from others and fenced in?

Like a loaded beretta,
I was so anxious and ready to use that four-letter word.
Blind to the knowledge about the power it carries,
I mean, only stories I’ve heard.

Desiring a destiny of someone,
Who love is so demanding and strict.
Seek and you should find your worth,
And I guess mine aint shit.

Knowing at my age,
The technique of my wisdom is so unique.
But still allowing love to break me down,
And making me weak.

I’ve given up on love,
Because I never come out with the winning hand.
Having the potential to exceed in this game,
But continuously coming out with just a friend.

I can’t keep intentionally preparing myself to get hurt.
I know my special someone is out there,
Waiting for me to release all of my love onto them determined for this to work.
