Problem Of The Coloured Girl

Not once, not twice,
Have I seen the coloured girl feel unappreciated or unworthy?
Her traits and qualities have been overlooked,
So she looks for things that don't need be.
Sometimes I can't help but label them the cause of their problems,
But yet again,
I can't help but be the pillar to lean on.

Just the other day I told my friend how beautiful she looks,
And she responded with;
"Lool, thanks but not me".
Wholeheartedly, that shit broke my heart as I stood on convincing grounds so she sees my point view,
Sadly my efforts were rebuffed.

Who you are?
I bet you don't even know.
Where you are?
I'm definite you don't know.
Where you're going?
It's hard for you to even know,
Because you got the problem of being beautifully unworthy.

How beautiful you are? 
You don't even know,
You rather hang on to the standards of magazines and playboys without knowing you're playing yourself.
Giving you reasons why you should hate this and embrace that,
In the process making you hate yourself because your embodiment has been filtered,
Leaving you with fragments of the natural you so you rather get comfortable in a lie and make it your safe haven.

The condom in which society has screwed you with is monetised,
It's no wonder your worth is been undervalued.

I would be dumb not to appreciate you because you're from me,
You're the other half of me so without you I can't be whole.
So fuck society for disregarding the other half of me,
Or rather,
Fuck you for disregarding the true queen that lives within.
Isn't it rather demeaning when you trade a ruby for a piece of rock? 
Yea, I guess so too!

And to my coloured girls who know and act their worth,
I got too much love for you.
With the shit, you go through,
You still measure to your standards.
You're a star and stars do one thing!

And I pray to the Lord that's what you do.

Sex With You (The Raconteur)

I can't possibly deny the fact that, Sex with you, Is the best I've had thus far. Haven't had much of it these days, Switched priorities! I Seldom reminisce about some naughty moments of you and your fuck me face, Maybe this is the only way I can keep you running through my mind on a canal loop.
I can't arguably deny that you were ideal enough to kickstart things with, But a peek over your shoulders and I see your dirts. And when we needed ironing issues out with a million things to say, We then become loud in silence and leave it up to the sex to resolve it all. At least it did resolve things until the same issues came up.
I can't arguably deny that I was naive with my decision making and let a couple of words from other people get to my head. The only thing that changed about me is change, And looking back on those days, I'd probably make a different decision right now, I guess I've really killed some part of the boy I once familiarized myself with, To a benign man who h…

Future Daughter (The Raconteur)

I heard Bruce Willis say; "God gives us children so we can have roses in December". But I know with you, he'll give me a garden full. That's a bounty for the bountiful,
From a birds eye view, I'll watch you grow into a Wonder Woman, One that knows how to mend a broken heart but often times take charge of situations. I'll groom you up into an African woman, You'll have a strange name that holds earthly meanings of your root, your culture and tribe. When people laugh at your own, Sing cheers of Hallelujah because they only mock the continuity of life.
I'll have men chase unicorns then feel butterflies in their stomach,  Before they can even come close to tasting your sweetness, sweetness. Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna, I have a sense of eunoia writing this because I know you hold an allure, I'll breed you into Psalm 31,  So virtuousness will be the order of your day. I know you'll be a logophile, I pray you don't become an eccedentesiast, Whenever you feel down, …

The Girl At The Olympics (The Raconteur)

This is the reaction after the thing, This is the other side of me you never got to see, This is me after you, This is me without you, This is for the youthful mind to understand the difference between the future and the present.
You know I'll be the first to be proud of you after your fam, You know you'll be no less than the girl at the Olympics, You know you'll never know how proud of you I was, when I heard that, You know these days I'm more or less your Stan. You know when I heard of this,  I just wanted to wrap you so tight in the circle of my arms, with you listening to rhythm of my joyful heart. I remember how you spoke about events like this. You know this piece isn't one to make your heart beat in calmness or boost your confidence,  Oh girl, you thought wrong.
Bittersweet, You know you'll always have a soft spot in my heart but not as soft as it used to be, You know you'll be in my thoughts but not as deep as before, You know I'll one way or another try to know …
