They Thought They Knew...

So many have been caught sleeping...
Then when they know they want to be peeping...
Even try creeping...

That is the the story of my life,
Those who thought they knew,
Because I was born into their family,
Or married in,
Or because I work in the office down the hall,
Or maybe these days because we have had a few chats online or something...
It has always amused me, pleased me....

Walking into my office several years ago they had me pegged...
I was another sister they thought...
With some credentials but, 'If You Seen One You Have Seen Them All."
Once they knew they were falling all over themselves to see what was up...
I let them know it was nothing but the work...
The salary doubled in five years, PLUS...
Cause while they still didnt know, they knew...

The same is true for writing....
I dont do much arm waving,
Gesticulating,
Or Frothing at the mouth...
When I introduced myself to the game...
I knew where I was going...
In my own sweet time...
Many thought when they read the first one...
They Knew...
'She just somebody, another anybody, throwing words on the page calling it a book..."
Hold up wait a minute, 'She wrote another one.'
What is this, how in the hail did it happen,
I know she didnt just go and do this...
No my friend you dont know,
You thought you knew,
That aint the same...
I am a methodical,
Thinker,
Planner,
Executer....
I KNEW from the gate that what I could get would never be better than,
What I already had,
Awesome spiritual life,
Handsome Loving Man,
Cool Relationships with my children,
My people,
I KNEW that all else would be gravy,
I also knew that those early books had to be done,
To take me where I needed to go, in the Master plan,
So if you really want to know, ask a sister,
Assume nothing,
Because if you don't,
Then you won't,
Know,
You will go away thinking you knew...
I will just be going on about the business of,
Handling my business....

HOLLA....
