African Queen

Poem By Cassandra Boyd

Celebrate our birth, without us
life is one dimensional

Enjoy the touch of our soft hands
as we soothe your tense muscles

Inhale the intoxicating woman
scent of our sexuality

Sepia, pecan, cinnamon, ebony
hues on butter soft skin
Watch us melt

Witness the strength of our ancestors
as we fight our demons

Brandy colored eyes shining with laughter,
touch your heart; You’re drowning
in a murky pool

Love our quick wit and decisiveness,
our total mental capability

Marvel at the grace and style with
which we walk in and out
of your life.

Yellow, Green, Blue,
fear, envy, sadness,
your colors shine so bright
and they wave like a flag up high.

A Letter From God

My child, why do you cry? Why do you grieve?
when you know all you have to do is believe.
I am the Omnipotent One,
all your troubles shall be gone.

Before I Wake

Before I wake, I dream of a day
when we will grow old together,
we will spend hours on end
discussing the plans

I want to hear your

'Cause You My Girl

I ain’t one of those hoochies that
will sleep with your man and
hang out with you at the club.

Would You Love Me Any Less

If I told you my secret would you love me any less?
Would you dismiss me from your life
and make me have regrets?
