It’s international women’s day and all I can think of sharing with my beautiful amazing sisters out there all over the world reading this a piece I wrote some time ago.
More than the lipstick
More than those stilettos
More than the inches of weave and extentions
More than the nail polish
More than the natural curls
We are more than what the eyes can see
Judging a book by its cover should be a crime
Judging a female by her grooming choices are absurd
Beneath that Russian red are prayerful lips
Beneath the inches of weave and extentions and curls are working brains
Beneath the mascara eyes that have cried more tears than you could imagine
Beneath the layers of clothing is a hearts that bleeds for love ones
Beneath those polished nails are hardworking hands
Women suffer as much as any other humans on earth
Women are judged more than any other humans on earth also
We only know how to dress everything up to look cute and shining
We only know how to hide the flaws and pains better
Remember this when next you want to Judge a woman
Remember we are MORE.
Being a woman isn’t easy being a woman in 2018 isn’t easy but you got this rise above it all, know that you are more and you can be anything and do anything. Because you’re a QUEEN!
And to all the men that support the women in their lives and push them to be better and make understand their beauty and strength. You are Heros, Warriors and Kings and we appreciate you💋.
Happy International Women’s Day Sis. Love D.A♥
