Treasure Island

Angel of Darkness

(May 23,1992 / North Carolina)

Flesh And Blood


To all my strong, intelligent, level-headed young ladies,
this ones for you.
Whether your a Christian, Muslim, Baptist, or an Orthodox Jew,
this ones for you.
As they live amongst us,
moving though this world quietly
very few know how hard it is to be a good girl
in todays society
hard to be a Daddy's Little Girl
when there is no daddy
hard not to be distracted when someone's following you
trying to get you to jump in their caddy
many fail to give credit where credit is due
not all females are the same
but some of these young dudes don't have a single clue
we got to treat them like queens
if we want to be treated like kings
Aretha Franklin once sang
your girl is a human being
she's no play thing
and just because she's flesh and blood
doesn't make her a piece of meat
Ladies if you let just one guy get a piece
you give him a victory, while your left in defeat
Fellas don't treat every girl like another trophy on your shelf
have some respect for those ladies
and some respect for your self
So from now on until the world come crashing down
whether from war, fire, or flood
We'll all be the same
All human, all flesh and blood

    Angel....I'm guessing that I know the thoughts behind this poem. This is an important message of respect for one another. I like this message...I like the fact that you are trying to reach out to others to help them. I think I see social worker (of one sort or another) in your future! ! : -)

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
