A Woman's Worth

If only she knew
how beautiful she is...
both inside and out
she'd know how
not just i but
how even the strangers in her presence
truly see her

if she could only feel
about herself
how i feel about her
everyone around her
feels about her
she'd know
exactly how loved she is...

gets lost in
misguided compliments and
knows only those who
give her the attention she craves and
in return she
bares her body
not realizing the beauty of her
mind and soul

she's empty...
not able to feel what real love is
through all of the
that she's encountered

if she
only knew
her true worth

if she
only knew the value
that not man but God
has placed on her life...
if she could feel something
other than the many hands that have
force-fed her iniquities
with their
shallow promises and
ill intentions

if she only knew...
that the attention she seeks was
already there
she would have never
fallen into the hands
of a world that loves to see us fail...
that loves when our women
demean themselves because it
gives them permission
to continue the trend...

if she would only
open her eyes to her surroundings
open her heart to some real truth
open her mind that she may think for herself
open her mouth to speak up and say
will I be subjected to this pain...
self destructive path
for I choose life
before I lose it completely

Wake up my beautiful are far more than your physical attributes.
