The Integrity of a woman

I came in this world,
Playing with dolls.
Learning how to comb hair,
Girls are sweet and spice and everything nice.
Believing I am more than my hips and thighs,
Because I am more than meets the eye.
I am strong and vulnerable too,
Let a man misuse my body,
I couldn't do..
All because they put there hopes and dreams
on the end of a stem..
Inow know why life for those people are so grim..
Some ask could it be true???
Do you possess all the wonders of the world????
To that I say yes, In the life of one little girl..
As I grew ,The more the lords waya started to shine...
Let them mess up their own life, Not mine
I am the fabric of life...
The part that hes to push through..
You take from life....
When God's people are numerous as the sand...Only cause you chose something other than his plan...
So,No! I won't hold my head nor my body down, For money drugs are anything so superficial,,
That don't last.
I am stepping over you like things of my past...
