WOMAN _ISH

There is much role playing when you are a WOMAN,
I know my sisters you are saying, ‘Role-playing, no not me!”
But come on, let’s be honest,
Some mornings we get up and we don’t want to do a thing,
And some don’t, but, mostly we do,
We step into the game and play,
At work we know that there are those who really has problems with our power,
But we know that the game must be played and play we do,
Cause let’s be real,
We are responsible for half this stuff…
Then there is our love thing,
We all know that we sometimes, straight up don’t agree with his,
Man-ness…
But we want him, so we play the game to stay in the game,
Sometimes we suck down what we really want to say,
Cause for heaven’s sake we don’t ever want to be called,
Egads…an emasculator….whoo!
And then there are the children,
Back in the day kids were seen and not heard,
But nowadays they are heard and we are sometimes so damned afraid to say anything,
Like:
‘Son, you really need a job…’
Or,
‘Daughter, that man beating you up is absolutely unacceptable,
Or
‘Son, please don’t leave babies all over time, that is just trifling and you can’t afford to take care of yourself…’
Or
‘Daughter, it is okay to be alone rather than share a man who is known to be with someone else and please, please, please don’t have a child with someone that already has children he's not caring for….
Instead in many cases we say and do nothing,
Not wanting to offend or run away those we love,
Or heaven forbid, have them stop loving us,
Cause you know that is what this is all about,
That WOMAN-ISH,
That wants to be loved…

BE BLESSED!
Angelia,

YAS,
somebody got to talk about the ISH, I figure it may as well be me!

Smooches!

Idrissa said...

Yeah, Yas. Sistah Deep talking LOUD this morning and I am hearing her and in agreement!

That Woman_ish ain't no joke and we all succumb to it, even when we don't admit to it...

Lately, when I start saying what they don't want to hear . . . they respond by saying; "well; she's menopausal." Want to blame it all on my hormones instead of giving me credit for telling the truth.

But that's okay. I understand that truth hurts sometimes and those around us aren't always ready to receive it . . . especially from us.

You two be blessed today.

Love and Hugz.

Sister I,
I am so over what they want to hear, if they bring it to me they are going to get it...otherwise, keep it out of my space...simple stuff...we gotta get these people to get it.

Love!

Sis when you break it down like that--it's clear we all play games at one level or another.

Sister Shelia,
We all game...for real...

Blessings!

So right. But sometimes I get tired of playing the game and speak my mind. Not very popular.

Sister Dera,
popularity and a dollar won't even get a cup of gas station coffee....

Grinning!
