Sample 1 Chapter 1 of Silent Whispers (Subtitle: “Elegant Expressions Of Lyrical Bliss”)
We, are overwhelmed with the images that the medial tries to feed us on a regular basis. Some of us, don’t look like the super models that grace our televisons and because of that we hurt our temples by either overeating or not eating enough. We, all have fallen victim to the hype of this generation of plastic surgery, debt, eating disorders etc all in the name of being accepted by society. When, will we learn how to love ourselves, and accept how our bodies look?
Ladies, I’ve come to realization that if we are overweight that you should make up in your mind to accept your body, understanding that (especially if you’ve had children) your body represents sheer elegance, confidence, and beauty that should be adhored! My sisters, it’s time for us to retire the sweats and embrace the strapless! As you journey through the pages of my mind about defining the true definition of womanhood understand that it’s not based on if I fit into a size 2 nor is it based on how much money I have in my bank account. It’s, based on how I view my own self worth as a woman(A Queen if you will) not letting go of my dreams, reaching them and taking this world by storm.
As, you read on be encouraged by the words I speak for I’ve learned how to use my being to edify and shape this world…………………….
THE TRUE DEFINITION OF WOMANHOOD
Beautiful, sexy, ambitions dynamic
Strong to the touch
Willing, to stand against all odds
Wishing to have Janet’s abs
While longing for JLo’s black book
Standing, in the midst of her world wishing age would press re-wind
Not able to accept the truth
Vein to the fact that time has changed everything
Gone are the days of size 2’s for fitting into them would be a dream
Birthing children, having a career
Praying for the strength of 10,000 men
Never will we accept defeat for our faith helps you to stand
Yet, we stand in the mirror reflecting on the years that have passed us by
Working to strive for the “Perfect” image only to be let down
Scrapping our dignity off of the floor as another relationship bites the dust
Dusting off years of rejection
Admiring, the smiles while laughing at the circumstances
How Can I Go On?
Standing for our dreams while loving the skin we are in
Enjoying , long walks while relaxing around the fire
Wearing the sweetest of scents
Hearing the birds sing our praises from beyond the window bay
Changing the lanes of our existence while going to the next level in our womanhood
Recovering from the true art of rejection
Tearing down the walls of silence through the spoken word
Inspiration found on the subways of my mind
My surroundings say “No” Why Me?
Struggling to live check to check
Some surviving off of lovers of the night
Tired, making it up the stairs to my success
Hoping always for the light at the end of the tunnel
Not allowing the road blocks to over take
Check my pulse!
Am, I still breathing?
Wishing i was in the middle of the ocean
Conversing with the fish as the Wales introduce me to their clan
Dancing on the oceans blue
Resting on the shores taking in the crystal blue waters
Moving beyond space and time
Awakening to the sounds of the streets
Only to discover that my stop has arrived
Off of the bus I remove myself determined for my dreams not to die
THE GREEN EYED ONE
African vibes from the motherland
Sending the sensations of compassion from beyond my mind
So often hearts become twisted, mended only by words left unspoken
Jesters of ambitions torn between my reality and fantasy
Traveling dangerous roads with feelings outward for nations to view
Bright eyed, willing to take on the world
Lipstick”Smakin” hips that rotate to the sounds from the motherland
Reaching, for your heart
Counting the cost of exposing my heart
The loneliness left without a trace
Embracing my love for the arts
Causing distractions in my reality
Crying for the chance to be seen
Longing for the chance to be seen
Heard, from beyond the four walls
Empowered by my creative edge.
