Good Women

This is an ode to the good women…

The women who are proud of their ethnicity, and can genuinely affirm their own beauty…

This is a shout out to the women who survived abuse, and daddy issues, and now issue a decree of new like the dawn of the sun on January first…

This is a reverent praise to the strong and the few… The ones whose lives were shattered, but used resolve and God as their emotional glue… The ladies who shine like night lights that survived the red light and emerged into the daylight… The ones who did what they had to do to get to the honey like winnie the pooh, and aren’t bound by a deluding sense of having something to prove- the ones who have seen the paw print of Jesus and caught a clue…. His blood purifies and rectifies you.

This is for the women swimmin’ upstream from their past… Who recognize that, constant reflection is bad, who can inch one limping step ahead at a time until they reach the golden path…

This is for the women who became women to early, and for the mothers who became mothers too soon… I salute your fight, and your staunch resilience against the grief the WORLD delivered to you.

This is for the women who through shaded jaded perspective can spot a good man… The women who can, be honest with themselves and, be transparent to the point of exposing GOD’S plan… For the women who hold it together despite coming undone… For the women who do not lose their stance under pressure, but rather become living diamonds… Good women.

This goes out to all the women, from the lightest to the tinted, who have tented their “ness” and became at home in their own skin…

This is for the women who- with no solid examples- managed to become wife material… The women who fed on lack yet now nurture.  Who were raised by lazy, but became workers.  Who were attempted abortions, and emerged to become sanctified BIRTHERS…

This is for the good women.

This is for the women who learned to be women, without the catalyst of a horror story… The women who had to pave the road of peace… This is for the women who make living a joy… The women who draw real men out from their caves to come and see…

This is an ode from a young man blessed on every side by women who may have started off as less, but transcended into Queens capable of taking over the land…

Praise God…

For the good women.
