on beneath these tears…

Beneath these tears...

Beneath these tears…

Beneath these tears

Is a strong woman, a highly seasoned woman

A fervent woman, a comical woman

 

Beneath these tears

Is a goddess, an African Princess

A descendant of Nefertiti

 

Beneath these tears

I will no longer give you the power

Of turning my smiles into frowns

Or allowing tears to cascade down my face

Beneath these tears

I feel sorry for you

I am ashamed on your behalf

And I pity you

 

Beneath these tears

You will never know

The vivaciousness that I possess

Or the reason for that sparkle in my eye

Or the progression that made me, me

 

Beneath these tears

You will never get to meet the woman I described!

You will never get to know this child of the most high

 

But most importantly,

Beneath these tears,

I want you to know that I forgive you

And I wish you well!
