I love what I have become.
A proud young black woman.
Curious, loving, kind,respectful,grateful and thankful for every life experiences which keeps knocking on my door everyday. Im learning.
Thank you for making me feel so alive,
remembering the agonizing thoughts of yesterday,
teaching me to embrace all the shortcomings that comes with life,
Everything I thought I knew about you it had faded away like a repressed thought,
You had become an unattended event of the past,
Shared a rehearsed conversation to hide our true feelings,
our superficial fronts follows us like haunted ghost
wrapped with unbearable desires
yet we shut ourselves out of the lustful cocoons
memories we have created are not forgetful dreams
Only if I can hear the liberating melody of my beating heart,
I will understand the message from that one last kiss you gave me
interwoven with good farewells,
promising all the best for the lonely journey we chose to embark…
A kiss which imprint my soul with forbidden pleasures,
slowly evoking the wickedness that lies behind those eyes of yours,
Sinful pleasures that promise to quench my thirst for love,
searching for the truth inside your lies,
tension caving in, building a wall between us.
making us known strangers
exiled by our egos,
Seeking new ways to heal the pain
Your silence overflows with profound revelations.
Now I truly understand why you were part of my past not my future,
you were an obstacle which deprived me to reach my full potential.
BUT NOW I HAVE LET YOU GO
I am more than happy
I am free….
My heart of gold
You’ve went through so much heartache,
You’ve been used,
You’ve been cherished,
You’ve been loved
and you’ve been hated for your free spirited attitude.
Though the world had put you in so much pain,
YOu keep on loving.
You’d never stopped forgiving.
During time of despair you keep on smiling.
I have tried understanding you
but I’m not succeeding.
My heart of gold,
You never gor weary of my confusions,
Kept my troubled soul at ease,
Captured the stillness of the free flowing
stream with the heart beat to form a beautiful melody.
Reminding me of my true worth,
Never underestimated the power of your existence.
Sometimes I question your kindness,
Trouble you with this world bitterness.
Tried hiding you away from the world
Yet you reassured me that nothing will come between us.
The pain will pass by like useless wind,
memories will remind us about what and where we’ve been…
The peaceful stream wil flow so gentle to wash away the dirt on our feet.
reminding us of our imperfections,
Feeling thankful everyday to hear you beating…
Pounding to remind me that I am alive.
Today is just another day to climb through the mountains.
Feeling eager to reach it peak
The gentle breeze filling my every sense with liberation,
I shall honor the creator for giving me such an important gift of life.
