Happy Monday! This weekend I was sidelined by a nasty cold that just drained all the energy from me, so please excuse the lack of activity this past week!( and probably this one too… sorry in advance)! However, I did mange to get out to the movies to watch “Hidden Figures” and boy am I glad that I did! What an amazing film! I encourage all women ( especially women of colour) to run out and watch this film! So empowering! I also watched the Golden Globes and was honoured to watch great talent like Viola Davis and Tracee Ellis Ross receive accolades for their work in film and television this award season… all of which inspired me to write this piece. Enjoy!
(Side note: All women are queens and are to be honoured and revered. I am a woman of colour and so often we are overlooked and overshadowed! This is just a special reminder to them)
Black Woman, did you know that you’re a Queen?
From the kinky coils of your hair and the melanin in your skin
Skin rich as cocoa or with a caramel hue
Yellow toned beauties and deep tones too
Black Woman did you know that you are strong?
Your strength overpowers all those who have done you wrong.
Like the person who told you, you’d never be enough
Or the ones who did everything to make life rough…
Black Woman did you know that you are smart?
Your mind is truly an impeccable piece of art!
Your wisdom surpasses them all
You turn the largest problems into nothing at all!!
Black Woman be proud
Hold your head up high
For although they may limit you
Your destiny is reaches far beyond the sky…
Black woman you were born to persevere
Through every adversity every toil, every fear
However, some black women must have forgot
That they were born to wear a crown and not to be a thot
Or a passing thought , a fleeting memory of someone not worthy
Black woman let them marvel at your beauty !
See, a black woman gave birth to a black woman who gave birth to a black woman and that woman is me…
Determined to be everything God intended me to be
A perfect design made in His own image … Black Woman take ownership of your royalty!
Black Woman…. did you know that you’re a Queen?
YOU…ARE…A…QUEEN! and don’t ever let anyone tell you different!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog tonight! Pray my strength so I can get back to regular scheduled posting! Until next time! xoxo

but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.”
