When the attraction you show is mirrored by the attraction of another
When whatever you show is reflected and not neglected by the other
When you don't see eye to eye but don't want to say goodbye, you apply a compromise as a cover....
Meaning.... If I could fly, but you're scared to touch the sky, to get by I would try to sacrifice and just hover
I don't want you to TRY to be the person I want, I want you to be the person I want without trying Instead of depriving me of who you really are, Open up to me without me having to pry in You're denying your personality while I'm being truthful on my end
So basically you're selling me lies and expecting me to buy in when the reason you're lying is because you cant be true to yourself I can never learn how to trust you if you're just teaching me you can be somebody else.
You can't play the role of another and leave the real you on a shelf Because at the end of the day if you don't have yourself then who do you have left?
Just lost direction from a false reflection.... You're neglecting your identity by covering it with a mask While the perception you giving me is temporary, it never lasts; Feeding me deception like I'm hungry for some trash
When your sincere imperfection is all that I ever ask. In a flash, I get my hopes up when you take me for another ride I mean the last "you" wasn't really you, but I might as well give this "you" a try Because this "you" could REALLY be you.... or "you" could be showing me another lie So now I'm straddling the fence wondering if the grass is greener on the other side... Wondering if I should skate on your ice heart, or take these skates off and just slide.... If I should untie this knot of feelings, or keep my leash and leave it tied.... If I should drown in this pool of lies, or swim off and keep my pride.... If I should live with the schizo or let the shit go like it died.... You know what?.... never mind. Because at times I'll put on a front mistaking it for protection.... But when it's done back to me.... actually.... it's just the Relationship of Reflection.
Believe in this rhyme as a Goddesses divine commandment; Believe in this rhyme because the revival of our race demands it.
Learn your life and your lineage bc lies cannot lie in legacy; Lift each other up each day to restore our Black Supremacy
And "A" stands for athletic bc ladies, we running this shit. As our
Color creeps 'cross the cadaver, choking the melanin out of it; making us
Kinetic is our collaboration our coronation and our Queendom;
Granting us grace, gifts, and greatness at our royal celebration; reminder that
I Am My Sistahs Keeper! And therefor the keeper of all inhabitants and intellect and injustice and inequality and inequity and individuality and innocence; so the
R is for our Goddess fearing RESILIENCE. I mean since our births we've been building it, constantly being blamed for being black but they keep on stealing it.
Lastly let you love loose like....like a lion leaping. Or should I say a lioness because us ladies we can roar louder than 1000 lions snoring and sleeping.
I vow this The Black Girl Constitution. Instilled to spark a Black Empowerment Revolution. Anyone that goes against this, ain't no threat; because the Black Girl Magic it possesses is immune to all evil and all fret.
In an era where black female leadership is now a necessity to society it is my honor to share this poem and introduce a blunt yet comical poet. It is no better time to help empower young black girls to become dominant leaders in the community. Women are seen as lovable and compassionate but its time to be fierce and bold. The beautiful Ms. Donique Aaliyah, describes the epitome of that black powerful woman in her poetry. Since the 8th grade she has been a published poet showcasing her talent for Duval County Student Writers. She is a poet who is motivated by pain and inspired by black excellence and prevailing in the black experience. Her favorite poet of course is a personal favorite Lauryn Hill who is currently on tour again :). During our interview Donique said something that I needed to hear. To all closet poets out there if you are struggling with opening up her advice is 'Go for it! Put it on paper and say it to someone.'

Throw in an apology for all the things that you offered but you ultimately lack.
I want it back.
In its original package
Minus the additional baggage.
Conceal the wound
Of emotions exhumed.
I just want it back
Please include my mind that escapes me
When the thought of you invades
The purest of me
I wanna forget
Leave you stranded on the island of regret.
you wish you could and you wish you might
Have the one who changed your life.
I want it back..
All of it.
No need for the strategic planning
You've done the damage
And I just need to escape.
The emotional rape of my love waves
When I envision the good days
That so happened to never exist.
I want it back
Bruised and sore.
From the tug of war
Your hot your cold till I want more.
Oblivious to the request
You play dumb so I'll want less.
Ill pry your fingers even beg for you to release...
I want it back.
My soul was shifted, lifted
My breath gone
Gasping for air like a drowning child
Like an erection that is having trouble erectin
My breath was taken....away
My lips and my tongue moved
But the voice was silent as the nights sky
The passion we shared more rare than amber colored eyes
The realization of losing u haunted my thoughts
Me falling in love, who would have thought
But at that instant in an instance I had fallen real talk
Life without you is not life at all
I experienced the recreation of love .
By: ME :)
