Strong Woman Boudoir-0003

Womanifesto by Jill Scott

Clearly I am not a fat ass I am active brain And lip smacking peach deep Sometimes too aggressive in its honesty And heart sweet That loves wholly and completely Whom it may choose Whom ever it may choose

I am not gonna lie and pacify I am arms to hold I am lips to speak I am a motherfucking "G"

Strong legs that stroll off the 33 bus Or out of a money green Phantom comfortably Knees that bend to pray Clean from Ajax washings Hair that is thick and soft Thighs that betwixt An amazing all expense grand prize

I am eyes that sing Smile that brightens Touch that rings And supplies euphoric release I am a Grand Dame Queen Beast

I am warm I am peace From the roads of Botswana from 23rd Street From the inside third eye Ever watching this wicked wicked system of things I do see

I am friend to pen And a lover of strong women A diamond to men I am curious and interested like children I welcome the wise to teach Appreciator of my culture Thick not just from bone dense and eat

I have a rhythm in my ways And a practice in my seek And yes, I do crave the rhythm of my space With a man that rejoices in God's Grace

With faith I do hear to listen Two hands that fist When forced pushes to shove And your ego won't submit

I am gifted I am all of this And indeed the shit

Clearly I am not just an ass
