I hear so much these days about female power,
And we know it is something, the hand that rocked the cradle and all...
But power my friends, is a slippery slope indeed,
And many times a trade off,
In my office, they tease me about being the silent power,
The one who is really in charge,
Largely because my job is to make sure the money is spent,
In ways that is legal and true to our mission,
Also because it is also my responsibility to weigh in on the unpopular stuff,
Like rules and is what it is,
But I know that my true power comes from who I am,
And how I try to live,
It is rooted in the fact that I know God, and truly believe,
And in the fact that I love people, and know and accept that I am loved,
Also, in the fact that I don't have to wake up every morning of my life,
Feeling as though I have anything to prove to anyone,
Or lay awake at night churning about a new way to get over on someone,
That is not necessary...
And ends up oftentimes being self-defeating,
Because Karma is truly a @#$&^,
And it always comes around,
One of the places where people try harder than any to prove,
Is within their love thang,
And I shudder at that, because I know one of the reasons that brothers and sisters,
Are struggling because there is so much show and prove,
One of the main reasons I have been able to be married so long is because I know this,
As does my man,
A woman wants loving devotion,
And a man needs loving respect,
And we both understand that to give that to the other,
In no way diminishes who we are or what we have,
But makes the thing work...
Each of us know what we are best at,
I am a task manager,
My man is a crisis manager,
We lovingly cede to the others strengths,
And sometimes ignore the others weaknesses,
It works I tell you, and lasting love and respect,
Is true POWER!

For real though!
