i ain't beat




i ain't beat

not even bruised
i'm cool as shit
like
breezes searching through strands of hair
bouncing on strong shoulders
i got SUN shine, baby...
beaming for me
making them baby browns
lighten with sparks that smile
turning my 5'4
[5'5 on a good day]
into Amazon statures
causing my limbs
to lengthen in stride
allowing me to glide
stepping on and over
whatever dares to tumble me down
eyes catching my shadows
gentlemanly nods
damn girls
and yes ma'ams
in interested glimpses of
a vision of womanly guile...
yes, indeedy...i got enough to feed the needy
i ain't beat, no sir...
butterflies trail me
flowers bending at my path
the kween is...
well, i just AM
and i am glorious!
love still swirls in me
my world still turns
dreams still exist
my heart still pumps sweet life
i ain't beat...
i ain't beat by
the aches of disappointment
the failed attempts
the folks that THINK they know
because someone TOLD em so...
the dissipating bonds
the feeling that there's no one left
to rely on
the tears that fall
and the yearnings that call
none of it
is fit
to beat me!
but of course...
i'm sure,
that there are those
who may feel strongly
that their words,
ways,
reasons and treasons
took me out
and didn't count on
my backbone
to hold me up through the trip ups...
i'm sure that those
who know good and damn well
that the stories they sell
are not worth enough
and
can never stand alone against the truest me...
they may pray that i lay still
immobilized by their wills
thinking i'm affected by backs turned
deflected points
projected guilts
and lies on stilts
not knowing that
i ain't beat...
i've got SUN shine, baby...
a solar star's energy
aflame within
bringing love
typifying pulchritude
and a kween's attitude...
standing on a square
crown still intact
hell nah...
i ain't beat,
why should i be?
