Strong Black Woman

As Black History Month draws to a close I would like to pay tribute to all women of color. I wrote the poems some years back and I want to share it with you. To every black woman who has gone through life believing she is not good enough; just know that you are enough!

Strong Black Woman

They told her she couldn’t do it,                          Image result for image of beautiful black woman

But she proved them all wrong.

Poor, bare foot country girl

Wanting to be doctor?

“Must be crazy,” they told her.

But she knew she was sane,

A doctor she wanted to be,

And for that goal she did aim.

 

They looked in awe and wonder,

Said she made them proud.

Yet they didn’t think her good enough,

For they told her she couldn’t have him,

Asked if she had lost her mind,

Doctor or not he wouldn’t marry her,

Her family was too poor,

And she was just too black.

 

She pitied their ignorance,

Felt ashamed for their own

lack of self-esteem.

She knew what she wanted

She knew together they would make a good team.

So she married him,

and stupid people that they were,

They wondered did he really love her or did she cast a spell?

 

Still enslaved by mental slavery,

They find it hard to understand,

That it is not the color of your skin,

Or the family you are from,

That defines you as a man or a woman.

 

 

Motivational Monday

In everyone lies the capacity for greatness. Know your strength, the things you are good at and work at improving them. Your mind is a powerful tool. When used wisely you can achieve things that at first might have seemed impossible. Positive thinking can make a difference in everyone’s life. Learn to master the art of positive thinking.

Be Careful What You set Your Heart Upon

“Be careful what you set your heart upon or you will surely have it.” I have found that there is some truth to this quote. You can apply it to your life as a tool of empowerment. Think about what you want to achieve in life. What is your greatest desire. What it it that you yearn for? Set your heart upon that think or things. Never lose focus on those things you desire the most and you will see a  manifestation of them in your life.

Daily Motivational Words to Inspire

One of the most important steps towards empowerment is having a reasonable belief in yourself and your abilities. Self-confidence plays a key role in your growth and development as an individual.

One of the main reasons people fail to evolve and grow is due to a lack of self confidence. It is not for a lack of strength. As individuals we all have our weak moments. Confidence is believing that in spite of what you might come up against you will overcome and achieve success.

Everyone has Something to Offer

Create a vision for your life and do not allow your environment, the people around you or past circumstance determine how you execute your dream. Stay focused. Ever so often rather than staying focused on what is important people allow naysayers to cause them to question their judgment and as a result lose confidence. One key element in achieving success is believing that it is possible.  We all have something to offer the world.  Your contribution is important. Challenge yourself to reach for the stars.
