Words


When you think of the one word that you need to satisfy you and make you become more of a woman, what is it? Some you always want to hear or need to say but can’t find it what it is.
When I think of the world and what I been through the one word that comes to my mind… is DOUBT.
Doubt I am not good enough…
Doubt I am not pretty enough…
Doubt I am not successful enough….

Always having doubt that because I am different will I be accepted…
Accepted in a society where it is ok to praise the Lord, but not other idols…
Approved in a community where if you thin skinny you get cater to like queen….
Accepted in a society where the white picket fence, husband, and good behave children is of norm…
Taken in a community where if you live below poverty automatically you are less than…
Accepted in a society where 50 years later you still are judged by the color of your skin and if not the right color you were blessed with than your below me.

When I think of doubt, I think of acceptance... together hand in hand they are the issue
The issue where tolerance becomes belligerent

When does it stop…
When does the word doubt become acceptance, and we together become an equal
When the days come, and night are weary wherein this world full of words will you stand
