Women

Women- Protect your hearts. Learn to be humble with wisdom. Learn to be silent in anger. Learn to love without forgetting to love yourself. Raise your children to know the word of God and love of God. You can’t be with your children 24/7 and God is forever and everywhere. Forgive and love again. Trust in God in relationships to always show you the truth to make a wise decision with that truth. Trust God with your heart and your lives, for, He will love you more than any man can. Ladies, let’s learn to love each other and lift each other up. Stop sharing men and breaking up un-happy homes; You deserve a man of your own.

Poetry- Being Born A Woman Being born a woman, being born a woman of color Being born a woman and have to be as I was born… a woman: walk like a woman, dress like a lady, speak wit. Being born a woman, being born a woman of color. Being born a woman and have to be as I was born… a woman: walk like a woman, dress like a lady, speak with with wisdom of a queen.

Being born as a woman to live in a man’s world, expected to change at a drop of a hat, shift with the wind, move with the times, and think like a man, hide emotions and use few words without feelings. Being born a woman and left to do a man’s job: provide, protect, lead, preach, teach our sons to be men and teach our daughters how not to be a weak for men

Being born a woman, the weight of the world sitting on her shoulders, worries flooding her mind like an ocean flooding the lands; carrying everybody’s problems in her soul, being the one to hold it all together.

Being born a woman, a slave to love, a slave to loneliness, and a slave to how we were taught to be… too strong to be weak. Being born a woman of difference; loved for the curve of her hips, the size of her butt and the length of her hair; loved for the skin she’s in, love for the body of a goddess… never being love for the woman that she is.

Being born a woman with spiritual beliefs, values and morals and have to lay it down in the hands of fools; push it aside with stripped pride; hide it in order to be love and get where she needs to be; put it on a shelf and provide for her family by any means necessary. Being born a woman and treated like a dog; fragile on the inside, tough on the outside; lost on the inside and going through the motions on the outside; broken on the inside and together on the outside; afraid on the inside and bold on the outside; insecure on the inside and beautiful on the outside; humble on the inside and stubborn on the outside; crying on the inside and smiling on the outside.

Being born a woman and always treated like a whore Being a woman and dying alone
 

 

 

 

Unconditional Love

Loving as God intended; Love that endures all things; Love that is a sincere, endearing, emotional, praying, compassionate, unselfish, merciful communication of the heart, soul, spirit, mind and body of two people in a relationship for a life-time. Love… a fairytale with a happy-ever-after.

Love through the good, the bad; love through sickness and health; love through joy, happiness, disagreements, misunderstandings, hurt and pain; love through storms, rains and cloudy days; love through richness, wealth and poverty; love through insecurities and pride. Love is the security of a solid ground, stability, doing what is right for you and your family.

Love does not lie. Love is honesty and doing nothing that will create a need to lie. Love does not argue, fuss and fight. Love is peaceful, kind, understanding and merciful Love does not leave because it’s the easier choice. Love endures, works things out in love and . Love is not being prejudice. We are all God’s children, we were not meant to be the same Love is not abusive: No one belongs to no one. No one should have that much power over you to make you mad. Love does not keep secrets: Secrets changes the texture of a relationship like a drop of dye in a pure glass of water. Love is not selfish: Love not about self. We are all here for someone else. Love is

We are all here for someone else. Love is sacrifice of self with wisdom, giving joyfully without expecting something in return, helping willingly without motives, putting someone else’s needs before your own.

Taking Advantage

Taking advantage of the weak in helpless moments, naive and innocent people is a very cruel thing.

From My Heart: The choice not to take advantage of someone; not to take advantage of a situation or issue; not taking advantage of the lesser being… shows that you have a heart, a soul, character, integrity, morals and values of a higher standard.

Advice: When someone takes advantage of a person seems to strengthen their weaknesses; much like pride covers FEAR. Stop being weak food for the strong. Know your self-worth. Hold your ground. Know that you have a right to say “No”. Know that you deserve better. Walk away. Do what’s best for you. Know that, if someone loves you, they won’t take advantage of you or your weaknesses. Don’t trust a fool to do right by you.

Strong

Poetry

It’s not in a black woman’s DNA to be weak. An illusion of strength to appear not-weak. I’ve been strong for so long that I can’t tell the difference between strength and hardness. A strong rod made of pride and insecurities. Fear mixed up with bitterness. Pain of wisdom grew roots of doubts. For once, I would like to be ok to be a black woman, weak in the arms of a man. For once, I would like to trust a man with my life, with my heart. I’m not as strong as I use to be, not as strong as I had to be… I feel fragile, vulnerable and at the mercy of my enemy. But it’s God’s strength keeping me strong in my weakness

Strength

Strength: Having a body of strength or being strong; having strength or being strong in certain skills, certain talents or abilities; Having strength or being strong is a product or shell nurture pride and egos.

From My Heart: I once wrote that, it take more strength to be weak than it does to be strong. Anyone can be strong but how many strong people can be weak. Some people rather die than to appear weak. Strength can be a band-aid of insecurities, hurt, low self-esteem and anger-a need to look strong in a weak moment.

Find strength to love yourself just the way you are. Having the strength to endure is better than having the strength to fight a dozen angry men. Wisdom and knowledge is stronger than foolishness. All strength is, is making through your weaknesses. Just make sure that your strength isn’t covering/replacing your weakness because of shame-that would be the beginning of Pride.

Being One

Poetry

How do I explain the need to be one with you; When the only oneness he know is being married, getting along and feeling good together. I need an oneness that doesn’t normally exist between two people. But I can’t ask something that you don’t believe that a man can do: Be honest, hold no secrets, be faithful, and always tell me the truth and don’t hurt me anymore. Be someone that I can trust, need, care for and know that I’m cared for. Love me pass your selfishness, pride, hardness and insecurity. Love me pass your ego, hurtful past and single man’s ways that comfort you. Be one with me in mind, body, spirit, soul, in heart, emotions and in life. Being one every day and everyday should be filled with loving me. I can’t ask something of you that you have never known… Oneness in love.

Spiritual Connection

For some, a spiritual connection comes after a sex; loving God on the same levels or equally yoked; an answer to a prayer for love to come and it does or a moment that feels like fate or destiny is real; when the two you are the same by the way of being different; your differences covers each other’s shortcomings and your made whole.

From My Heart: Spiritual Connection between two people is when God is a part of what you share: having the same dream; passing by each other singing the same song; heartbeats at the same pace; when one hurts the other feels the pain; silent words speaks depth to eachother’s soul; your one in Christ, one before God, you have the love of God for each other-no leaving and no forsaking, no lies and no disrespect, no unfaithfulness or abuse.

You’re a helpmate, a friend, a lover, a comforter to each other. You’re a forgiver and you except eachother’s shortcomings. You lift each other in prayer always. You feel each other in every way when you together or apart. There are no secrets or pride and you thank God for the love you share every day. And every day you find a reason about your mate to love and cherish even more. You can feel God’s love flowing from them; the love you share makes God’s love real in eachother’s lives. God is able to help you communicate with each other because each of you listens to God individually. You know each other in a way that’s amazing and unique and love over-powers, mends and conquers all things that try to come between you.

Shame

Poetry

Where does it come from? Being a shame of where we were born? When we could have died at birth? Being a shame of the color our skin? Our skin holds everything within Being a shame of the way we walk or talk. We were all born to be different and unique. Being a shame of the love ones. Love endures all, patient, kind and assuring. Being a shame of what we don’t know; But having the willingness to learn is a blessing. Being a shame of what we don’t have. Not having, makes the heart even more appreciative. Being a shame of what we don’t understand

Knowing is better than not knowing. Being a shame or our failures and mistakes. This how we learn and gain knowledge and wisdom. Being a shame because we don’t measure up to their standards, when in fact. I’m sure they don’t measure up to your heart, standards, values and self-worth.

What happens to make us feel this way? A single word, harsh word in the form of a sharp arrow, directed to our soul to make us bleed for a life time. Those words become alive.

Why do the negative thoughts of others hold so much power over our minds? Pride that covers fear; Wanting to belong or fit in; Needing to be praised or feel important; Caring about how others feel because we don’t value ourselves. Why do we believe the negative to be true? Because we don’t believe in ourselves; some of us don’t know what it’s like to have someone to believe in us so how do we begin to believe in self? Pray and see yourself as God

Pray and see yourself as God does-perfectly made, precious, amazing like Him and wrapped in love and mercy, beautiful inside and out. Cast down the thoughts of shame before it gets planted in your soul. Believe in you if no one else does and never give up on yourself.
