Your scars are beautiful, they show me strength, courage and POWER
Power over the BUMPS in life and PAIN that a sad day can bring
Let me kiss your beautiful head after you have SHAVED
I watch you shed the weight
You are a NEW WOMAN, re birthed and so you must LIVE for your sisters
And your life will honour those who didn’t survive life’s BUMPS
Her lips never said much
But her actions were very loud
Sometimes you don’t get to be the one to call for help
You are the HELP
It gets tiring because even sometimes you would want to be held by superman too
BUT when you are SUPERMAN
You don’t get to run…
You just have to push through it, fight through it, get up off the ground and LEAD THE PACK!
I would like to take the time to introduce myself to myself
Show myself the strengths and confidence that exists
Reveal all the secrets, fears and doubts and begin to tell the truth to myself
And even as I throw all these skeletons out…I look forward to learning other things myself forgot to mention when I was introducing myself to myself….
I will not let you walk through my mind with your dirty feet!
You won’t corrupt my thoughts against my ideas!
I will not let you open windows in my head to let in dirty air
To stain the positives I have built my brain on
You will not ruin what I built
I am the only one allowed to stand in my way, and even I won’t let myself stop me!
I’ll paint you a picture of me,
not me seated here in silence but rather me screaming
A picture of me screaming at you telling you how I really feel
Some how while I was sleeping it seems life created a world where the culture is to accept & conform otherwise you shall starve
- Definition hunger, neglect, discrimination, injustice, unemployment, homelessness
So I’ll paint you a picture of myself, the true self screaming at this idiotic culture where authority is defined as the man making more money and this makes him eligible to shout at you, spit on you if he permits it, because as far as he is concerned he is an elephant and you are the grass that he tramples
I’ll paint an image of me who screams while I sit here silenced by your authority
There is no fairness in this world is there? only elephants and grass
How big is your BRAVE?
