I am on a conquest
A conquest to find me
I am not what they portray me to be
I don't conform to rules or bend into shape
I ooze with love for that is how I was created
My design is that of a warrior with the heart of a goddess
I know my worth but tend to de-worth myself for love
I run to you as my source to make my days better
But all I end up with is a wounded heart with a battered and bruised body
I wonder why you don't love me
Haven't I evolved?
Why must you continue to hurt me instead of loving me some more?
Why must you disrespect me and defame the name that given to me?
I am not your slave you can't walk all over me
I allow you into my heart and that was my mistake
Refusing to blame all brothers for your lack of common sense
I am not your punching bag therefore your anger does not consume me
for I do not hate you I pray for your healing to come from within
I may not be the woman you respect but you say I'm who you love
But here it end with the death of this battle
I choose me and take me back
For when I gave you me yet you tried to erase me
You tried to oppress me the way the slave master has for 400 years
You talk down to me as if I am beneath your feet
Tolerate this abuse no more
I take a stand, prepare me for my awakening
My love for myself is to heal myself
I have the value of a god for I am infusing with the Most High
My eyes are the shape of almonds my lips are full while my skin glistening with the liquid gold called melanin
I am the definition of beauty and a temple of knowledge
I just won the battle to end all wars
For I know I am a Queen and lethal one at that
Return of the Ether beings for we have arrived
I pledge my alliance to the Universe and my love for myself
For She has been waiting for me to arrive
For I have seen the glory and beauty within Her eyes
I embrace the Queen within because it's time for Her to shine!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
