Let Me Take The Throne As Your African Queen Why have you been my giver? You ask of me and I Deliver You say you love me and I love you back. You turn away from me time and time again to be an Overage Mack. Stand Beside me, African King. Let me take the Throne as your African Queen. It seems like we are more Friends than lovers now. We talk and we help each other out. But there is so Much truth we cannot face. Never release your heart. My past is tainted until YOU open my heart... Now that my heart is open, You went away. I feel I need you so much but a part of you is Never quite there WITH Me. I do not know where your heart belong. I just do not know. All I can do is pray for you to be with me total. Why have you not been my giver? You ask of me and I deliver, You love me and I love you back You are turning away to be an Overage Mack. STAND BESIDE me African King Let, ME Take the throne as you Wife and African Queen. Silently I do not say to many words. I know where you been before and where you are. Unconditionally, I love you always. You are cherish by the many things you give me. I admire your accomplishment. The love we share Brought US to a higher plain. I rejoice the fact I had your children to roam another generation. Your heart is What I truly want to embrace. If you just let it. So all I can say is Stand Beside me African King. Let me take the throne as your African Queen. We are one, not many or several. We share the same pain and tears and laugher. It is so simple, If you just let it. My love for you is true but will my heart ache if it is not the truth? Why have you been my giver? You ask of me and I deliver, You love me and I love you back. You turn away to be an Overage Mack. Stand beside me African King. Let me take the throne as you African Queen.

As a child I read about knights in shining armor, I thought this would be the man I would marry. As a teen, I thought I knew love, but found infatuation quite scary. Now I'm all grown up, not sure if I should believe. Love is tearing me apart, and making me crazy. It seems like all my bubbles have burst, All of my sunshine is now hazy. I've been lied to, beaten, and cheated on. I've been talked about, used, and scorn. I've been manipulated, and persuaded. My heart is constantly torn. They've tried stripping me of my self-esteem, Tried to take away my pride. They've tried to make me hang my head low, feeling I should run and hide. Is this all that love has to offer me? Should I become as hard as stone? Should I become the b--ch they're calling me, or should I stay high upon my throne? I have a baby girl that looks up to me, I have to steer her right. Do I tell her of love so fair, or tell her of my plight? As I dig down into my soul, I find beauty no one can take away. I find a woman fit for a king, A strong, intelligent, black woman, to their dismay. I am the creator's child, He walks with me through the struggles of life. Now, I no longer feel alone and confused, He made me a wise mother, and loving wife.

REST EASY as the wind heals my pain. by heavenly sealing my wounds. LOVE CAN TAKE TIME LOVE CAN RUSH EASY. it's piercings leave unattended molds. listen to the sound, the wind of love. as I CRADLE myself in knowing, that LOVE could only get EASIER.

Vet (Gifted One) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ WHEN LEAST EXPECTED The groom stands at the alter But his bride doesn't show The light turns green but the Man slumped behind the wheel can not make the truck go The father of the newborn looks to His wife and says, "Honey lets name him Will" But she doesn't reply, she just lays still The young doctor heart stops in The middle of a toast to his family's health A little girl falls to the ground As her bicycle rolls on by itself Before taking a nap a college student Prays that he will pass an upcoming test He never makes it to class, never awakes from his rest Cheerleaders scream as their team face off Against their rivals in a game of basketball The star athlete goes up for a dunk His head hit the rim, he falls People waiting at the church, wonder why the body has yet to arrive None of them know, that as of five minutes ago, the undertaker is no longer alive At a family cookout the children play baseball in the yard The ball hits one of them a little to hard The night of the prom the girl waits and waits The next day she still hasn't heard from her date At a restaurant a woman says she has to go powder her nose Unaware to her boyfriend, her soul is gone before the bathroom door close In vain firemen rush to the scene, for the flames have been Set by angels with orders to let the world burn As promised, when least expected Jesus Christ has returned Demeterius Smith - email@example.com
