The women sing songs of Worship to make their journey only a step away.
The women sing! the women sing to be free!
The women sing to possess themselves for a moment at least.

""With relentless pursuit, success is my only option".
"Worry looks around, sorrow looks back but faith looks up".
I must say as being a poet myself, the poem was strong and full of various emotions and a big eye opener for a lot of people. I loved it and read it the way the poet would have read it, with strong conviction and dedication to his or her work. Three snaps and a Amen!
beautiful poem, thanks for sharing!

Super Deep, Thank You Lord for your response. I have wondered those very same things once in a while as I was growing up. Wow, it took 34 yrs to get it, but i got it.
I really like this poem.
I wont lie, no, I didnt write it. It was an e-mail sent to me a few years ago and I kept it because I think it is very beautiful.
I just wanted to share it with you all :-)
that's beautiful!!!!i ask God the same question so this is his answer
Progress, not perfection!
That's a beautiful poem...Did you write it
If You're tired or starting over stop giving up
Tema - Matteson IL
"Tenacity is the quality displayed by someone who just won't quit -- who keeps trying until they reach their goal. Anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination! I AM a Tenacious Jungle Tiger and these are my survival skills!!"
Just a little encourgement for all you black beautiful people out there....ENJOY
Why Did You Make Me Black Lord ....
Lord .... Why did you make me black?
Why did you make someone
the world would hold back?
Black is the color of dirty clothes,
of grimy hands and feet...
Black is the color of darkness,
of tired beaten streets...
Why did you give me thick lips,
a broad nose and kinky hair?
Why did you create someone
who receives the hated stare?
Black is the color of the bruised eye
when someone gets hurt...
Black is the color of darkness,
black is the color of dirt.
Why is my bone structure so thick,
my hips and cheeks so high?
Why are my eyes brown,
and not the color of the sky?
Why do people think I'm useless?
How come I feel so used?
Why do people see my skin
and think I should be abused?
Lord, I just don't understand...
What is it about my skin?
Why is it some people want to hate me
and not know the person within?
Black is what people are "Labeled"
when others want to keep them away...
Black is the color of shadows cast...
Black is the end of the day.
Lord you know my own people mistreat me, and you know this just ain't
They don't like my hair, they don't like my skin, as they say I'm too
dark or too light!
Lord, don't you think
it's time to make a change?
Why don't you redo creation
and make everyone the same?
Why did I make you black? Why did I make you black?
I made you in the color of coal
from which beautiful diamonds are formed...
I made you in the color of oil,
the black gold which keeps people warm.
Your color is the same as the rich dark soil that grows the food you
Your color is the same as the black stallion and panther, Oh what
majestic creatures indeed!
All colors of the heavenly rainbow
can be found throughout every nation...
When all these colors are blended,
you become my greatest creation!
Your hair is the texture of lamb's wool, such a beautiful creature is
I am the shepherd who watches them,
I will ALWAYS watch over thee!
You are the color of the midnight sky,
I put star glitter in your eyes...
There's a beautiful smile hidden behind your pain...
That's why your cheeks are so high!
You are the color of dark clouds
from the hurricanes I create in September...
I made your lips so full and thick,
so when you kiss...they will remember!
Your stature is strong,
your bone structure thick to withstand the burden of time...
The reflection you see in the mirror,
that image that looks back, that is MINE!
So get off your knees,
look in the mirror and tell me what you see?
I didn't make you in the image of darkness...
I made you in the image of ME!
