About Me I'm on a personal journey, enjoying those that cross my path, helping those, that need an extra hand, and hoping to make it a safer road for the most innocent yet to come.

I'm a mother, wife, revolutionary activist...
I once thought that the "truth" was something you were told... but I know now it is something you know within your heart. I once thought a friend was someone you spoke to everyday... but I know now, a true friend is someone even when you don't speak to them everyday, there are there when it really matters. I once thought that someone could complete me... but I know now, I am complete just within myself. I once thought that love was was meant to last forever, but I know now, that even when we love only for a moment in time, and it ends... we are still blessed to ever have loved at all. To everyone that I have loved... even if only for a moment in time... Thank You for my blessings!!!

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

You must learn day by day, year by year, to broaden your horizon. The more things you love, the more you are interested in, the more you enjoy, the more you are indignant about, the more you have left when anything happens.
