It’s Time………

In honor of women’s history month and our time of self care, I share a poem written by my sister, Colette Youngblood. Within each of us is a girl who must find her voice and become the woman she was created to be.

It’s time…….

A WOMAN SITS IN A CORNER, QUIET AND AFRAID TO SPEAK.

SHE GREW UP IN CHURCH HEARING THE WORD SPOKEN WEEK AFTER WEEK.

BECAUSE OF THE PAIN THIS WOMAN EXPERIENCED HER WORDS ARE TRAPPED INSIDE.

SHE BLAMES HERSELF FOR THE ABUSE AND HER SHAME SHE MUST HIDE.

SHE KNEW THAT WHOM THE SON SET FREE IS TRULY FREE INDEED.

BUT KNOWING IT AND BELIEVING IS THE HELP THAT SHE WOULD NEED.

THERE IS A LITTLE GIRL INSIDE THIS WOMAN THAT NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW.

IF THIS WOMAN DOESN’T REALIZE THAT EVERY CHILD MUST GROW.

THE PERCEPTION OF THIS WOMAN WAS THAT SHE WAS SPECIAL, A GIFT HER MOTHERS SURVIVING TWIN CHILD.

THE PERCEPTION OF THIS GIRL WAS THAT SHE WAS NOTHING BUT A TOY HER BODY TO BE DEFILED.

I ASK, WHO A FUTURE HERE, THE WOMAN AFRAID TO LIVE FREELY GUIDED BY A GIRL.

OR A GIRL WHO SEES HERSELF A WORTHLESS TO YOUNG TO REALIZE THAT SHE IS ACTUALLY A GENUINE PEARL.

THE WOMAN HAD DREAMS OF MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THAT SHE WOULD HAVE SUPPORTED

BUT THE LITTLE GIRLS PAIN HAS SHOWN HER LOVE THAT WAS DISTORTED.

THE WOMAN HAS A JOB, MATERIAL THINGS AND POSTION,

BUT BECAUSE OF IMMATURITY HAS NO CLEAR VISION.

THE GIRL WOULD WAIT YEARS FOR SOMEONE TO TELL HER SHE COULD MAKE IT.

BUT THE WOMAN GREW TIRED AND AROUND PEOPLE SHE WOULD FAKE IT.

NOW THE TIME HAS COME FOR THESE TWO TO MEET,
THEY DON’T HAVE TO BATTLE, IT’S THE MIND THEY MUST DEFEAT

SO STAND UP WOMAN , GROW UP CHILD WHATEVER HAS BEEN STOLEN IS BACK FOR USE.

SPIRITUALLY RESTORING ALL LOST TRUTHS.

NO LONGER CAN THIS WOMAN STAR IN A PLAY WHERE VICTIMS ARE THE ENTIRE CAST.

NO LONGER CAN THIS GIRL CONTROL BY LIVING IN THE PAST.

I AM HERE LIVING IN FULLNESS EVERYDAY TO OBTAIN HIS GLORY.

SO I SAY TO ABUSE, NEGLECT, DISAPPOINT, CONFUSION HATRED INFERIORITY AND LONILINESS, YOU NO LONGER WRITE MY STORY.
