The Woman That I Rejected

I am the woman that I rejected

because she wasn’t pretty enough to keep attention

i mean what is beauty if its not of convention

She is too wild, too strong, too her self to ever be me

I’d rather be the woman on my screens with long weaves

and diamond rings you know the girl that all the guys want.

So i poisoned my mind and rejected my heart

and filled my life with promises of false art

lost from the start and going nowhere fast

Past trash recycled into bling I rejected who I was

and tried to make that my thing

but she waited for me.

Admired me from afar as I took turns loving and hating myself

My rejected queen held no animosity

in fact she smiled and said

I am we and you is me so why not be who we both want to see

and say fuck the world and the eyes of society.

My do you inspire me

lost in the fire she turned and whispered

glow the fuck up show the fuck out

and let them never force you to speak ill from your mouth.

You are of a Divine legacy

and we been waiting for you to stop rejecting

and start stepping into your divine destiny.

I am the woman that I rejected and she is me

Crowned. Royal and Respected.
