Sista wears her ego
like a badge --

decked out in amour propre
covering the
mocha glazed uniform
of narcisism which she had
accessorized by arrogance

-- but in reality she is empty
and alone

Sista knows she is cliche,
has told herself to talk
only in careful circles

She salutes the
morning sun
~ the only entity above
herself

She blinks away all rays
of self-doubt and boards
a tram toward her
small domain

In the company of other
sistas...
this too wears thin

...knowing other planets
revolve around their own
penetrating suns

~Salutes fall slack against
such chanting
and by the days end
the arm
may refuse to rise

What is left but a blinking
before cobalt glare
a salute
of finger in
musk-stained air

I really like this one..

too true for so many who put themselves up on a pedestal...
only to find that when they fell they had further to fall and it hurt more on impact..when reality struck...

just

tell the truth.... cuz beauty's only skin deep... (and I know you ain't just talking "physical" here....) but you feel me feeling you...

we could discuss possible reasons for someone over-emphasizing they emphasis...like that emptiness you speak of... could very well be manifested due to deep seated insecurities...which are then masked by over-bearing, obnoxious, delusions of grandeur types of behaviors... they call it overcompensation...

but that's ok, sis... we won't go there, so

just tell the truth, anyhow :D

peace

very tyght-ly packaged (as ALWAYS) :)...

but honest-ly... i don't see nothing wrong
wit a lil' ego trippin' every now & again. it keeps
haters on their toes & creates thought-full flows...
such as this! so... i'm wit Shery's daddy... let a
***** be a *****... as long as she's the best... even
if it's self-professed... as long as the fall from the
pedestal's not hurting you. LOL :lol:

AlwaysPeace&Love.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
