Tina Turner Our Story


Born to nothing
Opened her own door
And Ike walked through it
Ike like all the others we married
Walked through our door
With his drugs and sex and ego
But like some of us
From the bottom
Leading with her chin
Tina opened another door
This one for herself
Opened another door
And took her talent, her body and all of us
Through it
Proud Mary
Proud 70’s women
Breaking ground
Opening one door at a time
Leaving Ike behind
And all he represented

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
