Friday & Every Black Girl Needs A Theme Song

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 12:01 AM

friday took his time
knowing how long
i've been waiting
to see his face

he played hard
pretending he didn't care
to see me again
but really, he longed to feel
my lips against his
warmth. you see

friday needs me
as much as i need
to see him comin'
my way,
strolling slow like
i've been waiting
all week
to see him


every black girl
needs a theme song
a song that curls
up inside her
feeding her dreams
with the fruit of possibility

every black girl
needs a theme song
to echo the dreams
she is afraid to share
with the world
which tears down
faster than it can build

every black girl
needs a theme song
to sway hips, confidently
tossing shoulder back
head up, knowing
that no matter what
she can handle it

(c) me, just now.
read. savor. repeat.

    Nice TPW! really nice!
    ..."strolling slow like

    "feeding her dreams with the fruit of possibility"
    There's an Otis Redding song that I use as my theme music. your words have inspired me to 'hook a beat up,convert it into hip-hop form' so I can "...sway hips, confidently":) Thanks for sharing! :)

    Hmm... you have made me wonder what my theme song would be. ; ) I could really use one at this moment. It would be nice if the theme song ended on a beautiful, achieving note. LOL For real!

    This is beautiful sis.

    You are SO dope. I'm off to my iTunes list to find a rotating list of theme songs right now (because one just won't do).

    And Friday? Ha' mercy.

    Keep writing, my love--you got some serious skills.
