The Essence of A Black Woman

25 07 2007

You may have seen it before, but….

special attention to Duksey, Kissyfur, petesmama,

You can see the essence of a black woman when she walks into a room.
Her beauty is like a flower that blooms.
She doesn’t need a man to be strong,
Because she remains a woman all on her own.
She overcomes challenges that stands in her way.
The inner strength she has gets her through the day.
She continues to triumph with elegance and grace.
While being a double jeopardy because of her sex and her race.
She is a goal oriented woman with style and confidence.
She never forgets where she comes from and for that she is blessed.
She has faith in God and not ashamed to acknowledge his presence in her life.
She can testify that without him she could never endure any sacrifice.
This black woman of beauty is the mother of all.
And for that we should be proud and stand tall.
Everyone around her can feel her presence.
For she is a Black woman of essence.

This is something i could claim for myself. Problem is… are all black women the same then? i see myself handling a given situation differently from the way my best friend handles it… some times very noisily and sometimes just going about it all very smoothly and efficiently… “all in a day’s work” so to speak.

But it’s the noisy bit that i am really getting at. And truth be told, there are quite a number of noisy women out there that make you wonder where this “Black woman” actually is!!! Or should i say her essence?

Mr. Back2Basics...

Atleast you like..

extra-licious indeed…. sounds nice[-a-licious.]

well, you caught me off guard there,
Many Black women are not appreciated for what they are truly worth…
which makes it hard for them [or their essence] to really be appreciated.
on the whole i think that it is fair to say what you have said. Reasons being there only appreciation comes from their children which sometimes reduces as they grow older, wiser, and the like…

Make me a copy and advise me how i can come pick it up!!
Beautiful Poem as well
