A pure divine to life, beautiful as a lotus
that blooms from the dripples of water, and the rays from the sun.
From the soil a seed was planted, deep in the womb
The anatomy wept from agony and painless fear
As death was a creep as the verdict was near.
But in due time that seed discharged
Effortless cries and a rapid heartbeat
Silent moan for such a beautiful damsel
Of course that seed produced me
Labeling me as Brianna Wise
A heartless menace, with a petit physique
Struggling to pronounce my inner feelings
Withholding my special qualities of talents
Behind a mural divided from the world but in my zone
A girl of fawohodie adinkra, a beautiful black queen
Muscles of an ox, with that keen like complexion that’s hard to bruise
Secondary feminism, mentality more masculine than any miss
In the words of everyone I engage with, on a loquacious level
They say, “You act like a woman, but think like a man”
So sincere and real as honesty, Steve Harvey title isn’t a motto for me
As I portray that I don’t care attitude to voices that talk down or these young ruffians
Who don’t care about me
Carefree and selfless, you would think I had ADHD how witty I can be
A confidant, mediator, so sweet every flavor; Bold as the B in Microsoft word
And blunt just as the word is defined
But Hold Up, I’m ambitious; I don’t have any unattainable dreams that can’t be reached
Quiet at times, a loner in my mind
Such a deep thinker, I like to reminiscence on all the things I did back then. And make up fairy tale dreams or ideal thoughts normally you would see portrayed in movies
That classic gal with tom-boy ways used to dip and dive and get dirty with the guys far from an attention grabber more or less I'd intend to hang around my thugs than emotional wrecks who plagiarize the reality of their lifestyles and engage in gatherings to converse about prima-Donna dramatic issues about what he/she said and criticize every disorder or abnormal defect on their chassis
Tend to act upon my pleasures of what I want and to do, relatively the responsibility may be a primary caution to me
Sometimes I just don't listen to me
Reacting upon the impulse of the adrenaline piercing through me never quick to give up but picky when it comes to who I trust
God fearing but thankful for each day I'm blessed upon many and experienced journeys beyond captivating
so easy to love like riches, but quick to verbal abuse towards ignorance and times of animosity
Rarely get close to people, because they always leave and can't get attached cause I'm not even close to the ones I love
Very observant of individuals and the environment
I'm quiet because I don't give myself up to easily not interested in telling my life story
Takes a lot to get me angry, I don't know if I'm crazy, but they say like mother like daughter and if I'm anything like that beauty and beast then I’m wild.
Sophisticated and carried as a lady, I simply say Be Wise; B.Wise.
